Greetings andThank You very much for looking me up. The QTHis here inEnglewood Colorado, about 5 miles straight south of the Downtown area of Denver and the Capitol Building @ 5280ft / 1 Mile above sea level. Station Elevation here is 5324ft above sea level and I have a modest station situated on a small sized piece of property approximately 75ft X 150ft.
The main rig here is a Yaesu FT-950 that is usually running Barefoot but I do have an Old Henry amp that I use for tuff copy situations. The antenna for 10-15-20 meters is a Vintage Hy-Gain TH6DXX on a short Vintage Hy-Gain HBX tower@ 40ft. For 40 meters I use a Homebrew Inverted V using a Home brew 1:1 balun@ 40ft and a Home brew 3 element Yagi @ 25ft for 12 meters. And I use a single Omniangle OA-50 Loop for 6 meters up @ 35ft
HF 1KW 6 Meters 100w Max Power
This is me with my Other Hobby !! 2001 Harley Davidson FXDX Dyna Superglide
Same machine with a 21" front wheel instead of the 19" that came stock on the bike
Me Again assembling the Boom of my early 1970's vintage Hy-Gain TH-6DXX with all New Stainless Hardware and all New Plastic Parts from MFJ/Hy-Gain. Antenna was rebuilt in the summer of '09 and put up on July 2nd of that year. Now in early spring of 2012 I noticed that already some of my New trap boots have cracked and worked their way down one of the elements. Wouldn't give you 50 cents for the hy-gain rebuild kit for this antenna. Too Bad the parts for the antenna aren't as good as the antenna it self. The TH-6 is a great antenna.
The TH-6 up at 40ft. A close look to see the 40m Inverted V and a 6 Meter Loop that looks like it's in the trees below the big antenna but it's on a homebrew push up pole on the house at about 35ft. Also the 3 element Home brew 12 Meter Yagi on another homebrew push up pole at 25ft.
Another Photo of the TH-6 and a bit of the 33ft Vertical. The antenna in the background is no longer there.
Not such a good perspective. Looks a Lot Higher than it really is !!
Here I am with my brother- in- law on my right and an old friend on my left standing behind a bike that doesn't belong to us !!!!
7 3 and thanks for looking me up !!
GL and Good DX !!
