Current antenna system shown above: 105BA @ 90', 115BA @ 85', 205BA @ 80' on Rohn 45G turned by T2X; HiZ4 Lowband receive system; DX88 vertical, inverted Vee 80 meters; 102 ' tuned doublet (MFJ9982 tuner for 80-10 m); MFJ998 Intellituner; W3B WARC dipole;1/4 wave sloper for 160 meters;
5 element 6 meter yagi @40'; KLM 40CX/KLM-14C Satellite antennas rotated by G5600B with Landwehr Preamps and controlled by LVB Tracker/SATPC32; 21 cm 48 element looper (mode L/1296); 4 element 2 meter horizonal polarized yagi for CW/SSB; 4 element 2 meter J-pole for FM on 80' tower.
The above antenna picture is of an early system: 20 meter 6 element on a 58' boom @ 75 feet turned by proppitch motor on HS-471K crankup Tri-Ex tower. Above the 20 meter antenna was a 3 element Hy-Gain DB1015 for 10 and 15 meters. The shorter "unused" tower was for antenna maintenance and "tie down" for hurricanes.
The ham shack picture is from 1958 and was taken at the Donaldson Air Force Base (Greenville, SC) MARS station, AF4FDT, with Gus K4YYM (SK) Capt. USAF, at the mike with his son, K4YYL.
