    Reinhard Richter DJ1KM. Full system showing 60cm dish and patch feed plus Kuhne MKU-24-TM downconverter. He has painted the system using white acrylic from a spray can. An autumnal backdrop completes this attractive photo.

    Bob McElligott HL2/KK4UZ. Full system showing unpainted 60cm dish and patch feed plus Kuhne MKU-232-A2 pre-amplifier. Bob is a 5th floor 'apartment dweller' with antennas on a balcony looking through a window. Cable is 10 metres of RG-174 for the connection to his Myers/ Conifer 2400 SBDX downconverter, which is then coupled to (i) a Yaesu FT736R for transponder operations, and (ii) a Hamtronics 144/28MHz converter plus IC-735 for telemetry.

    Georges Mathgen LX1BB. An SSB UEK-3000 and Patch feed mounted in a 60 cm dish "produces spectacular results" says Georges of his system, here pictured against an evergreen windbreak.


     N8MH_PHOTO

    Mark Hammond N8MH. Patch Feed with DEM pre-amplifier and AIDC 3733 downconverter are mounted to a 32" dish in yet another forest setting. Shadows hint that his fine system is complemented by a 9 turn Helix for 70cm.

    Joe Hannigan WL7M. Looking straight up under a 3'x2' surplus Primestar dish. "It has worked great here in Alaska! So far, the snow and weather have not impacted it in any way."


     K5GUU_PHOTO

    Kenneth Shutt K5GUU. Side by side, the 60cm dish with patch outperforms a BBQ by about 3 db in signal to noise ratio. Both antennas use a TSI AIDC 3733 downconverter. "A low noise pre-amplifer is the next project" says Ken.


     ON6XY_PHOTO

    Jean-Marie Denis ON6XY. Parabolic AB downconverter, Patch feed and deep dish inspired by E.T. make this a very quiet 95cm system. My favourite.

    Wayne Estes W9AE. Wayne built this AO-40 DXpedition antenna kit which fits in a 25x25x7" plywood box. It is available for loan to anyone in North America who is willing to use it to activate a rare entity on AO-40.
