Greetings and Thank You very much for looking me up. The QTH is Gans Oklahoma, about 20 miles straight west of Fort Smith Arkansas. Station is located on 5 1\2 acres on Wild Horse Mountain 3 miles from the Arkansas River 5 miles downstream from Robert Kerr Reservoir. 620ft above most of the surrounding terrain.
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 10-20 meters will be a Hy-Gain TH11DXX on a short Vintage Hy-Gain HBX tower@ 50ft. For 40 meters I use a Homebrew Inverted V using a Home brew 1:1 balun@ 40ft and a Home brew 1\4 wave vertical with 35 ground radials set on the hillside next to a pond just east of the antenna. We have just moved to our new QTH (7-15-15) and still in the process of setting up the station. Hoping to have antennas up before the holidays. Antenna and tower is on the property and waiting for cooler weather to be installed. More to come from EM25.

This is me with my Other Hobby !! 2001 Harley Davidson FXD 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... picture 6/15/2009
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. picture 10/20/2011
Another Photo of the TH-6 and a bit of the 33ft Vertical. The antenna in the background is no longer there. picture 7/20/2009
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 !!!!
