KF6KYI's blog

I'm about as barebones as can be imagined.

Transceiver: Yaesu FT-817, typically running 0.5w
Antenna: 40m dipole, coax fed (yes, not optimal on 30m)
Software: Homebrew beaconing software, written and running on my MacBook

I'm writing up some of my experiments on my blog at http://brainwagon.org.

I've also begun to acquire the parts for a standalone beacon based on the 74HC240.
