Some Pictures, enjoy!

WWII Memorial in Martinsburg WV.

 

 

57 foot (17.5) Meter ground mounted vertical, by Zero-Five antenna, it has 120-50 foot (15.25) Meter ground radials.

The antenna is 4 inches in diameter at the bottom, and tappers of to 3/8 of an inch at the top.

ground system, with a 4:1 UNUN. 120 - 50 foot ground radials.

Gives you an idea of how tall it is, you still cant see the top, I am 6 feet tall!

Guyed at 15 feet (4.5) meters tight, then again at 25 feet (7.6) meters, and again at 45 feet (13.7) Meters. The upper 2 guys are left loose in order to let this vertical sway around a bit, this keeps the down force to a min when it is windy.

It was a little breezy out today.

Looking up from the bottom makes you a bit dizzy.

My daughter and I, her call is KD8PGO, she got her tech ticket when she was 10 years old, back in 2010.

27 Foot gorund plane vertical, I use this on 30M-10M this one is also made by Zero-Five antennas. It is mounted on a 15 foot mast about 120 feet away from the shack, this is better use to be mounted on the house, but to much noise, this far out and it is quiet.

 

 

Yaesu FTDX 5000, this is a great rig, boy I am spoiled with this thing, soooooo quiet and the filters are superb! I did not get the MP or the D model, however I did get the 300hz filter.

The Shack.The box to the left unter the left monitor is the switch box for the Shared Apex Loop antenna.

The Shared Apex Loop Antenna, for low bands, this thing is great! really helps on recieve, I can hear stations I would never be able to copy with out it. It switches instantly in 8 different directions. It can flip instantly 180 degrees and can also listen in two directions at the same time, like north and south at the same time, has really helped with the low bands

Some of my awards, I dont chase them but if they fall in my lap I will claim them, at least to a point.
