Greetings and welcome . Thank you for looking me up.

I'm able to operate on all allocated HF bands, plus 6, 4, 2 metres and 70 cm . I now use the Yaesu FT-847. As a backup I also have the Icom 746 transceiver.

The main rotatable aerial on the 15 metre 4 section lattice tiltover tower is a 2 ele Mosley tribander which was formally a Mosley 'Mustang'. The 'Mustang' has the 2KW traps, however my max output nowadays is just 100 watts. On the Mosley tribander I use a 'director' element in preference to a reflector.

On the short 1.6 metre boom which holds the 2 element Mosley 'Mustang' resides probably the most effective aerial I've built so far, namely a 17 metre half wave dipole utilising 2 loaded coils. As can be aeen in the picture the 17 m dipole is fastened only about half a metre behind the Mustang's driven element. But irrespective of the close element spacing, both aerials perform most satisfactorily.

Highest aerial on top of the tower is a commercially made 6 meter, 2 metre and 70 centimetre vertical tribander.

Incidentally the enclosed Tower/Aerial picture does of course illustrate the four section telescopic tower in it's lowered position.

My other HF aerial is the multiband 41 metre long (configured north / south) Windom, utilises a 4 to1 current balon at the feed point , with the feed point being at the aerials highest point above terra firma, namely about 8 metres only.

Because the village has been designated a conservation area, when the station isn't active the Peak Park Planning department requested me to keep a low profile. So I modified the crank-up tower to motorised remote control , enabling me the convenience to power the tower up and down from inside the cottage's radio room.

Also the main reasons for reducing the Mustang from three elements to two, constructing the 17 metre dipole using loaded coils and using the trapless multi-band Windom was because of the aforementioned low profile request from the Peak Park Planning department.

Enjoy and very 73,

Bev G4XIY.
