I am back from the Big Island after four years on the "big rock". Construction is now completed for a new super station on 24 acres.
The station consists of five towers....three rotating and two guyed.
Tower 1: 200 foot rotating Rohn 55 with 6/6/6/6 at 156/117/78/39 ft for 15 meters (This is the tower in the upper right
Tower 2: 200 foot rotating Rohn 65 with 5/5/5/5 at 196/150/100/50 ft for 20 meters

My 160 antenna is a wire tee-top GP with the base at 60 feet with four tuned radials
I was first licensed in 1962 under the call of WV2ZPK as a novice. I upgraded the next month to general and was given the call of WA2ZPK. In 1974 I moved to Florida and changed my call to WA4TYL. Finally, in 1976 my call was changed to K4XS.
K4XS, KH7XS and WH7YL are calls used at the station for daily QSOs and contesting. The call KJ3X is used for WPX contests.
I have been a member of the rapidly growing Florida Contest Group since 1997. Check out our site at www.floridacontestgroup.org/.
Please send all cards for both KH7XS and K4XS DIRECT (SASE, IRC ETC.)ONLY!
