QSL image for K1PGS

I was first licensed in 1967 as a novice. Later that year, I obtained my general and then my advanced license on the same day. I upgraded to extra class in December 2011.

I have a number of antenna. My primary antenna for 20M thru 6M is a K4KIO hex beam. I installed it in June 2013, father's day, with the help of my oldest daughter Amy. The hex beam replaced a Mosley CL33 tri-bander that was installed in 1975, when I put up the tower.

I am a fan of wire antenna, fed with 450 ohm ladder line through home made 4:1 baluns. I use about 20 feet of coax from the Palstar AT2KD tuner to the outside baluns.

I use a 80M delta loop that is a triangle with the point down. The top wire is up about 50 feet. I feed it 2/3 up on the southern leg with 450 ohm ladder line.

I also feed a 33 foot Zero-FIve vertical ground plane. The ground plane is 10 feet off the ground with two 33 foot wire radials also at 10 feet above the ground. Here is a picture of the Hexbeam and tower.

My radios are a Yasue FT-2000 on the left, a Kenwood TS-590S in the middle and a Ten Tec Omni VII on the right. The top shelf shows my PC screen, the Palstar tuner and my 1971 Heathkit SB-200 amp.

 

I enjoy all the HF bands but you can usually find me on 17M, 20M and 40M.

 

I operate 2M and 440 dStar using a ICOM ID-880H. I also operate 220 with a Jetstream. You can see the Diamond 2M/220/440 antenna under the hex beam.

I QSL via LOTW and eQSL. I will send you a regular QSL card if you send me a stamped self-addressed envelope.

73s and good DX.......

Paul
