First licensed in 1952 lived in Mineola NY at the time. After getting married (N2EUP XYL) we moved to Smithtown Long Island NY. Now, live in Fort Myers Florida, after long periods of no HF hamming the "bug" has bitten again!

Presently using FT 950 as primary xcvr and Flex 3000 as secondary. Two different end fed antennae one is 24' long with 4:1 baluun and runs 60/240 degrees and is 15 ft in air using pool enclosure as counterpoise works europe quite well.....other is 66' long with an SG-235 autotuner and 230' rg213 it runs 90/270 degrees up 15 feet in air again using the pool enclosure.....both are using #18 nylon jacketd copper clad steel wire. both have usuable swr 160 to10 mtrs. of course they are limited in capability so have to sometimes resort to my HL-550FX amplifier to try to make up for the poor antennae....but......we all know the antenna is most important!..so far since jan 2012 i've managed 1530 qso's (if you can call them that) and 227 for DXCC but it's getting more and more difficult.

The rest of my station enclosed in this computer hutch is comprised of a Yaesu FT 7800 and an FT8800, a AEA PK9600 tnc, a signallink,

a AEA PK232 MBX this is an old one modified. The vhf/uhf antennae are in the attic, a 2 mtr beam, a 70cm beam and 2 omni vhf/uhf

antenna. There is another dual band vhf/uhf antenna mounted inside our pool enclosure connected another FT 7800 for XYL (N2EUP) to use to call

me while I'm out mobile (FT 8800). Do have HOA restrictions. 73 John
