Ham Member Lookups: 9559

This is my hobby as I retired from the workforce in 1995 as a professional engineer in mechanical. I was licensed as a novice around 1957 as KN4RVN. I am a real amateur radio operator, not a pro like some of you. LOL. I served four years in the US Navy from 1951-1955 with 3 years and 4 months aboard the USS Carter Hall LSD-3.

My antennas are a 5 band Hex Beam at about 50 ft using a modified hazer and a Rohn 25 40 ft tower with a 12ft mast, and a half square for 40 meters at 55 ft to cover Europe and Asia..   . I have aTen Tec Omni 6 plus and an Ameritron AL 80A amp . I recently bought a SB 200 AMP and a Ten Tech Omni 6 with factory option 3 upgrade to use on 40 meters.   The SB200 was refurbished by another ham friend who sold it to me at my request. It works great with about 650 watts to 700 watts on 40 meters. I recently built a two element 40 meter bent dipole beam.It has a driven element, a 16 ft boom and a director. Looks from a distance like a cubical quad.  It is on a 50 ft rohn 25 tower with a 10 ft mast and a hazer. I sold the Icom 751 A. I am in the process of moving my shack from the basement to my spare room in the house. The 40 meter beam is 175 ft of coax from my shack now.

This bottom photo is my 40 meter bent dipole beam on a quad frame. The wire of the driven element is 66 ft long fed at the top horizonal with an insulator but horiz. is only 18 ft long. A 16 ft boom places another wire 62 ft long as a director on 40 meters. This is a full 1/2 wave length 2 element bent dipole beam. Also loads great on 15 meters and good on 17 meters.  I run 650 watts usually . Signals sent are normally 59 plus in the states and even some DX. It is rotated with a Ham 2. I have not used my half square since the beam was installed.
