ROARS Club Station - N6ROR
The new club communications trailer as as deployed and when under construction

Now used for EMCOMM testing, Field Day and any major club activity.
Totally self-contained with solar panels, big batteries, night lighting, HF/VHF/UHF radios and antennas.
Radios include a Flex 6500, ICOM 7300, Yeasu FTM-400 & Anytone D868UV DMR. Putting much of the hardware on a rack mount cleared up much needed desk space for other office needs, and gives great shielding and grounding.
Antennas are a 10-15-20 meter Yagi Cushcraft A3S on a rotator,a 80-40-30-20-17-15-12-10 meter end fed long wire (EFLW-8010) and a 6 meter Vertical (Diamond CP62)
Many HT's (too many), and a dedicated Uniden scanner.

Great custom antenna farm in Ranchita, and a full array of analog and digital communications setups.
The big one is 10-160 home brew fan dipole. And the H tower is vhf and uhf. There are three towers that aren't pictured.
A serious Ham shack. Two crank-up towers, antennas for all bands, weather station, scanner, linear and a multitude of current and classic radios. Santa Clause recently gave him an ICOM 7300. Worked all 50 states, Antarctica and more.
Since I'm a new member... Just like to share my station. I was impressed with the emergency plan the club has. I was worried that the club may not have much of a plan. I was wrong. I love that the club focuses on actual situations and preparedness. My station can operate on solar/battery backup and generator. Operational on hf 80-10m all vhf/uhf, frs/gmrs and cb. Mobile I only have vhf/uhf/gmrs/Frs. Portable vhf/uhf/gmrs repeater also available with 4x4 for location drop where it's needed. Glad to be a part of the group!
Has a most impressive office/Ham Shack with a granite-rock mounted 30' Vertical that is also a flag pole and a 203' End Fed Long Wire (EFLW). Between both antennas he is good for 160 m to 6 m, plus his VHF/UHF system. Radios include ICOMs 7000, 7100 & 7610 plus and Elecraft KPA500. Yaesu's dominate his VHF/UHF family, but there is room for an Anytone D868UV DMR.
