Best of the Holidays To You and Yours - Bill - WD8ARZ

=============================================
APRS - Geiger Counter - WD8ARZ Ham Mobile

Am currently mobile Wednesday Dec 19th, 2012 from NW Indiana to 
Murfreesboro, TN East of
Nashville. Will be combination of mobile and portable while in TN. HFN 
MarsAle Pilot
Station operation will be running when in portable RV location where we 
are staying.
That property location I have a 200 foot end feed wire up.

Listed below are the voice frequencies I will try and operate / monitor
on. They are plugged into memory making it easy while in motion to
change memories from the mike.

Rig is TS-480 HX running 200 watts into a HiQ 5-160 screwdriver antenna
mounted on the rear of a Trail Blazer using the trailer hitch for the
mount. Antenna shunt is a Shunt-100.

Auto tuning is done by a N2VZ Enterprises Turbo Tuner.

Vehicle battery isolation control is done by a APO3 Timing / Voltage
configured relay - Also keeps power off equipment during starting.

Ham equipment is ran full time off a separate 100 aHr Gel battery. Gel
battery is charged / isolated from vehicle using a Super PWRgate PG40S.
Power distribution uses the RIGrunner 4008 which provides over / under
voltage alarm, multiple fused power pole connections, and reverse
polarity protection.

Will be running APRS on two meters. WD8ARZ-9 from mobile rig (TMD-700A),
and from time to time WD8ARZ-5 from Epic 4G smart phone.

Also will be feeding Geiger Counter radiation readings to the
http://www.radiationnetwork.com/ radiation map.
