I presently have a 10 meter beacon on 28.2118mHz. It is running about 3 watts into a 102" ground mounted vertical antenna. It is fed by a modified Sharp CB-2460 CB radio and an ID-O-Matic II keyer. The radio mod was done by WB5DYG and the radio belongs to him. Due to RFI problems and antenna restrictions at his location, Ron passed it on to me for a try at this QTH. There are no antenna restrictions, which permits me to place the antenna in the clear and a considerable distance from the house to avoid the potential for RFI to our consumer electronic devices. So far, so good!

First licensed in about 1974 as WB8TGX, I have been active to one degree or another since with the occasional hiatus for such things as child-rearing and career related travel. From the time I discovered short wave radio on my folks Sparton console radio in about 1955, I have been an avid short wave listener. I am now retired from a career as a field engineer for a large company which made custom high current DC power supplies (>100,000 amperes), as well as medium voltage variable frequency motor drives through 30,000 horsepower.

Included is a link to WB5DYG's web page which has a history of the beacon:
