OH6V Shack
« on: May 28, 2019, 09:56:19 AM »

Hello all, a small demostration of our "Family shack", Me and My XYL Suvi OH6EZU are both active from our home-station (and sometimes our son too as second operator, no own callsign yet). In start of 2019 we decided to buy a vanity callsign for our station, OH6V, playfully "Radio Team Vainionpää", as the V comes from our last names first letter.

Radios in shack:
Yaesu FT450at - Main radio for HF operation (with DIY digimode-interface and external LDG AT-200ProII ATU).
Icom IC-7000 - Main radio for VHF/UHF operation and portable operations.
Comco MDR150 - 5W VHF Data-RTX

Cushcraft R-7000 40-30-20-17-15-12-10m HF-vertical
Diamond X-300N VHF/UHF collinear vertical
Aerial vertical VHF-dipole for 2m APRS-igate.

Other equipments:
Tuners: LDG AT-200Pro2 & LDG AT-7000.
PC with i5 3.1GHz, 8GB and SSD for Digimodes + another PC for websurfing.
Raspberry Pi2 for APRS igate (running APRX, USB-RS232 to MDR150 (kiss)).
Lots of different wires and portable verticals etc. for field-day/WWFF. etc activity.

Because of small backyard and limited space there is no way to put up a real tower but have to live with it, maybe some day.. :)
Active on HF & V-UHF. Mostly on air with "Family vanity" OH6V - Radio Team Vainionpää.
