80 M (3.5 MHz)

80 Meters Amateur Ham Radio Band (3.500 – 4.000 MHz)

Tuning of the 80 meters radio amateur band on Icom IC-R8500 receiver.

OT5A, a guided tour of the 80-meter band ham radio station.
Piet, ON5PVH shows you around at the 80-meter station at OT5A, the Multi-Multi contest station of the Lierse Radioamateurs.
This clubstation is located on a WW I fortress.
I you dreamed of operating a BIG GUN in the CQWW and WPX DX contest, you should watch this video. OT5A welcomes guest-operators. The presentation in dutch has been interpreted to English. More info at www.ot5a.org

Frequency Devices 60 to 80 Meter Half Wave Dipole Antenna with Balun 60-80HWDB

  • Made in the USA
  • 60 Meters – 7 MHz / 80 Meters – 3.5 MHz
  • Made from #14 7/22 stranded hard-drawn copper wire
  • Will handle up to 1500 Watts with SWR below 2:1
  • Stainless Steel Hardware
  • The Frequency Devices Half Wave Center Fed Dipole antenna with Balun can be used on any frequency from 7 MHz to 3.5 MHz (60 Meters to 80 Meters). It uses #14 7/22 stranded hard-drawn copper wire to meet the requirements of the National Electrical Code and have the best radiation efficiency. The antenna has been tested to withstand 100 pounds of strain over time without breaking. It can be installed as an inverted V or as a straight dipole. Antenna resonant frequency will vary with how high you hang the antenna and what kinds of buildings or trees are near the antenna. This means that an antenna tested at the factory out in the clear and up in the air may test fine at the factory and not work at your location. The Frequency Devices antennas come with the ends unterminated and ready for tuning at your site and under your conditions. They come with complete simple instructions on how to adjust the length for proper tuning of the antenna. You only need a SWR meter to adjust them – something that is built into most modern transmitters. Our antennas are built using 18-8 stainless steel hardware, all internal nuts are self-locking, and all holes are sealed with RTV sealent. These antennas are made in our factory in Ottawa, Illinois and shipped directly to you through the US Post Office. This antenna comes with about 138 feet of wire. Bill Franklin, K9EIF

Icom IC-718 HF All Band Amateur Base Transceiver 100 Watts – Original Icom USA

  • USB, LSB, CW, RTTY(FSK) and AM modes are built-in
  • 0.03-29.999999 MHz* general coverage receive capability. *Guaranteed range: 0.5-29.999999 MHz
  • Total 101 memory channels are available
  • The DSP includes the following to give you superior receiver quality in your shack, vehicle or during DX’pedition.
  • Level adjustable noise blanker – RF attenuator and Pre-amplifier – Variety of scanning function types

The HF bands allow you to communicate over long distances covering many km even to the other side of the world. With the superior performance found in the IC-718 such as wide dvnamic range, high C/N ratio, and full duty operation you will find making these contacts easy. Experience the combination of the latest RF and digital technology, along with the size and simplified operation. You will see the IC-718 will be the most practical rig you will ever own. The IC-718 has a speaker mounted on the front panel. With the speaker facing the operator, audio sounds can be clearly heard without impediment during operation. It is no longer necessary to manually increase the volume to try and capture audio sounds. The IC-718 has 0.03-29.999999 MHz* general coverage receive capability. A 4-element system is employed for the 1st receive mixer, providing superior receive IMD, especially from in-band near-by interfering signals. A well-designed double-conversion system to help minimize image and spurious responses for better signal fidelity, is also built-in. A newly designed PLL circuit has been adopted to improve C/N ratio characteristics. The combination of the 4-element system mixer and new PLL circuit allows superior basic performance as that of a commercial grade transceiver. *Guaranteed range: 0.5-29.999999 MHz.
