PA2TG (Trevor Gale)'s Radio Web Page.

    Updated 25th September, 2013 - late-ish.


Welcome to my (PA2TG, ex-G8GFH) Radio and ATV pages, where I share my Amateur Radio and basic engineering interests with other people and fellow amateurs.


I happen to be a fairly 'act-ive' Radio Amateur, and quite a lot of my radio station equipment is also designed and built by me in my workshop, together with many of the antennas involved in it's use.
As a little dramatic interlude, or perhaps a part of ones' education, or simply for entertainment, take a quick listen to some other characters on the 80-metre band who could explain some history of the persuit if they ever got down to it(!).

I work the H.F. bands (160/80/40/20/15 and 10m) as well as the VHF bands 6m / 50MHz and 2m / 144MHz and UHF bands 70cm / 432MHz and the higher bands 23cm / 1296MHz 13cm (2330MHz and 3cm / 10GHz. (The bands in between are planned to be built for, i.e. 9cm / 3450MHz, and 6cm / 5800MHz. Much of the microwave activity is dedicated to the persuit of A.T.V. (Amateur TeleVision) and that has a separate section here on the site.

The previous website I had devoted to this interest was becoming unwieldly, so I have hopefully organised it to make it easier to navigate it and bring it up-tp-date. The website side of things is still not my main priority, but I shall try and keep it a little more in line with current activities and various goings-on in the workshop and the radio area, which are many and varied. I find that 28 hours per day is simply not sufficient! (Some Astromer colleague tells me there are actually only approximately 24 hours in an Earth day, thus providing evidence that Engineers work longer and harder than anyone else on the planet.).
With all of this in mind, I have divided all the content into sections, and these are as follows:-

Latest News in the PA2TG station as is here updated, various activities (also latest ATV news).

Component data for devices that are commonly used here, a whole list.

General Facilities at PA2TG Here you'll find information concerning power feed to the equipment, grounding, my mast and it's erection and control, and security.

ATV: A later (in terms of a couple of years!) interest and activity has been that of ATV (Amateur TeleVision) and most of my more recent activities in Amateur Radio have been in this field. Herein is more information about this activity.

Computers used at PA2TG and their purposes, the wiring of them, etc.

The H.F. bands (1.8 to 30 MHz) used in the PA2TG station, the rigs for these bands, the antennas and the accessories and extra modes of operation are described here.

Using it Higher Up:PA2TG also makes heavy makes use of the higher frequency bands for the more conventional activities, namely on 6m / 50 MHz, 2m / 144 MHz, 70cm / 432 MHz and 23cm or 1.2 GHz.

Space: an area important at PA2TG since the effects of the Sun and the use of satellites are all things which affect Amateur Radio. Therefore various space-related matters are dealt with here.
