My QSL Manager is W4JS - please send SASE, New IRC or green stamps.  NOTE: Sorry, I cannot accept or reply to cards sent to the station QTH in Volcan, Panama - NO Panama (BURÓ) bureau cards please! They may be delayed for one year, or never arrive!  I periodically upload HP3AK contacts to LOTW.  I do not use E-qsl, so LOTW or a paper card to the manager is your way to receive confirmation, if wanted.  I am retired and very active outside of ham radio, so I do NOT usually make or keep schedules.

STATION: I'm located at 4,757 feet above sea level (1,450 meters), 30 miles (50 km) from the Pacific (clear view) and 30 miles (50 km) from the Caribbean (over a mountain range).

  • Radios:  Angelia SDR board driving a Hardrock-50, or an Icom 756 Pro 3 (with Inrad roofing filter)
  • Amplifiers: Ameritron ALS-1306, or a Drake L4B, or a SGC-1000
  • Antennas: 
    • 3 element SteppIR for 20 - 6 meters at 55 feet
    • 2 element ZL-special beam with linear-loaded elements on 40m at 65 feet
    • 3 element phased delta loop array on 75 meters (pictured below)  
    • Receive antenna - Top-Beam Systems Waller Flag at 71 ft. for 160, 75 & 40 meters 

I only operate SSB at this time.  My next antenna project is to load the 65 ft. tower on 160m for transmit.  Then on to preparing and raising tower number 3...

HP3AK 3el 75m loops

Below is a picture of the Waller Flag receiving antenna at 71 feet with the 2 element 40 meter beam at 65 feet on the free-standing Rohn 65G tower. (Rigid supports at 48 ft. down from top.)


Previous operations during 2007 and until January 16, 2008 were from HP3/K1YJ. * W4JS is the QSL manager for all of these operations as well.

Cards for K1YJ operations from Nashville, TN U.S.A. go to the QRZ address and may take several months for a reply.
