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 also have a half square antenna at 45 ft for north and south. I have aTen Tec Omni 6 plus and an Ameritron AL 80A amp . I recently bought a SB 200 AMP and an Icom 751A to use on 40 meters and also as a back up. The 751A is a nice rig and the SB 200 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.
