PREVIOUS CALLS: KN5UYJ - WA0JBU - WB8BQL - WA1ZRS - T5CB (Early 1993 from Mogadishu - FUN place !!)

When I hit 4-score in age, I decided to rebuild my entire HF antenna system, with all homebrew antennas, looking to keep it relatively simple, yet high in performance, and 7 months later the all homebrew antenna system below is what I came up with.  Go figure.

SWITCHABLE BEVERAGES: 660 ft - NE-SW & 600 ft NW-SE

160M - Tower vertical - Omega matched (The 'puter sez it's about 240 'electrical' feet tall)

80M - Crossed & switchable Inverted Vs at 180 ft

40M - 48 ft Linear loaded rotating dipole at 200 ft

20-10M - LPDA at 188 ft

My QTH (Deer Trail) is in the TEXAS HILL COUNTRY that abounds with wildlife. So far, I've spotted: Black Bear - Mountain Lion (Black Panther actually) - Whitetail & other Deer - Bobcat - Javalina - Armadillo - Raccoon - Coyote - Red Fox - Pepi LePiew -  Bunnies - Squirrels - Eagles - Hawks - Osprey (these like to roost on my HF LP at night, they fish in the nearby Llano River) - Roadrunners (Beep - Beep) -Turkey Buzzards - Horned Toads - Rattlesnakes - Coral Snakes - Tarantula - BlackWidow Spiders - Brown Recluse Spiders - Scorpions - Centipedes.  Some are fun, most are not.

Presently in use are a venerable ICOM IC775DSP & AL-82 and an even more venerable TenTec OMNI V & AL-80B, both with Heil mics.

I like both DXing and ragchewing, meeting new folks throughout the world, staying in touch with old acquaintances, give me a call if you hear me on.  I QSL 100% by Buro or direct.       73
