K3FGO celebrating 50 years in ham radio

Using a Yaesu FT-1000D,  and Alpha 76PA linear amplifier. 75' tower with a 4 element M2 20M4DX, with a 2 element 40 meter Cushcraft XM-240 yagi above it at 85'. Inverted V for 80 mtrs, inverted "L" on 160. Yaesu FT-650 and SB-220 King conversions for 6 meters. 

2nd tower holds Optibeam OB9-2WARC 12/17m duoband yagi is at 66', 7L C3i for 6 at 71', and a 2L 30m 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, is doing a fantastic job installing tower 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.
