Using a Yaesu FT-1000D,  and Alpha 76PA linear amplifier for 1500W on HF. 

For 6m using Kenwood TS-590S and SB-220 King Conversions linear for 1200W.

75' tower with a 4 element M2, 20M4DX for 20M and 2 element 40M Cushcraft XM-240 yagi above it at 85'. 

Inverted V for 80 mtrs at 70', inverted "L" on 160.  A 720' Beverage rcve ant is fixed on EU for 160-40 meters.                Youtube link on the Beverage is found below


2nd tower holds Optibeam OB9-2WARC 12/17M duoband yagi, 4 ele on 17M,  5 ele on 12M at 66', C7-50HD, 7L 6M yagi at 71', and  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 would 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!                                             

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.

I shall forever be grateful to Monk Apollo, SV2ASP/A for his kindness and spiritual guidance. He and his fellow Monks on Mt. Athos will always be in my prayers.
