Willing to share my radio as long as you play nice!

Hi all,

I have a very modest station:

Flex6500
SPE 1KFA
HF Autotuner
Simple End Fed wire at 25 feet.

There is zero doubt my station will not impress the likes of someone like Howard with his monster beam and 12kw ERP (grin).  But I would like to allow my station to be shared by a few nice people here.

I think the only way right now to do this is to share the details of my SmartLink login.  Anyway I'd love to share my station and in return perhaps share the stations of others.

My email is:  ws7m@arrl.net

Email me if interested.  I'd love to see how well this works.

Paul and all.  I am hopeful this is where V2.x will lead us.  A network of radios we can all play with.

Back in the 70's I used to visit a friend ham with a really nice station and on days when he was not using it I would play with his station.  Now we can do this without travel and it is very cool.

I hope others will move this direction.

I'll make mine available today for anyone that wants to try it out. 

Flex-6700 100 watts 
ANT1 - 40-6 - SteppIR MonstIR beam, 6 elements on 6, 4 elements 20 thru 10, 3 elements on 30 and 40. Auto switched with DDUtil. TX inhibited while tuning. 
ANT2 - 80 - 1/4 wave vertical

Currently beaming EU but can beam anywhere you like.

If you would like to transmit, you must have a valid FCC issued amateur radio license, CEPT or IARP does not qualify (FCC rules, not mine).

I'm good in QRZ or I'm on Facebook... ria.h.jairam
