K5CLM Station Tour and Potential Problems


Hey everybody and welcome back to Everything Ham Radio. If you listened to my podcasts, you may remember me saying how I had issues with getting my HF radio to work. All I ever hear is static.

Welp, I still have the same problem

I’ve decided to take y’all on a tour of my shack from the antenna outside to the radio inside and everywhere in between. Check out the video below:

In the video, I have pointed out four potential problem areas that I see.

  1. Antenna placement
  2. Extra coax cooled up
  3. Issues with my radios
  4. High transmission power lines

One or all of these could be a player in why I can hear anything but static and why I can hit two repeaters that are with 8 miles or less of me that I have a direct line of sight of from the ground outside my shack.

What do yall think my problem is? Leave a comment below and let me know.

Until next time,

73 de Curtis, K5CLM
