My pot of gold at the end of the rainbow- together 42 years

 

Using a Yaesu FT-1000D,  and Alpha 76PA linear amplifier for HF. 

For 6m using Yaesu FT-650 and SB-220 King Conversions linear. 

75' tower with a 4 element M2 20M4DX for 20M and a 2 element 40 meter Cushcraft XM-240 yagi above it at 85'. Inverted V for 80 mtrs, inverted "L" on 160. 

2nd tower holds Optibeam OB9-2WARC 12/17m duoband yagi at 66', C7-50HD, 7L 6m yagi at 71', and a 2L 30m OB2-30 Optibeam yagi at 76'.   Needed urgent help from Tom at Optibeam for special issue and he came through immediately so that the project can be completed on time. Absolutely the BEST service I've ever seen from any supplier in my 50 years in ham radio. Tnx Tom and Optibeam!

Dan, K1TO did a fantastic job installing tower #2 and antennas, with an eye for detail, and professionalism that I've never seen before. Franco, K1MAA, has done excellent cement work and assistance to Dan; this tower is solid!

  A 720' Beverage is aimed at Europe and used on 160, 80 and 40 meters. A youtube link to hear the Beverage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmNjvHxJWgw

The QSL card below, was designed by my father for me when I was 12 years old back in 1963. I have kept the card exactly as he drew it 50 years ago, in memory of him. I plan on continuing with this card for the next 50 yrs.
