My antennas are all homebrew, I use a Linear-Loaded 47 ft rotating dipole at 200 ft on 40M, a VHF-UHF (to 600 MHz) LPDA at 194 ft, an LPDA at 188 ft for 20-10M and the tower is fed thru Omega Matches as a vertical on both 75 & 160M, the 75M Omega is at 80 ft. Beverage antenna #1, NE-SW, is 480 ft long and Beverage antenna #2, SE-NW, is 600 ft long. I like to chase DX and rag-chew, and make some interesting contacts and friends around the country and the world. I'm on the DXCC Honor Roll and have 339 countries confirmed on the current list.
I currently use an ICOM IC-775DSP, TenTec Omni V, Ameritrons AL-80B and AL-82, all with Heil microphones and headsets with boom mics.
Some of the more interesting wildlife that I've spotted out here in the Texas Hill Country are: Black Bear, Mountain Lion, Bobcat, Whitetail Deer, Coyote, Fox, Javelina, Raccoon, Pocupine, Armadillo, Hawks, Eagles, Osprey (these seem to like to roost nights on my LP, they fish in a nearby river), Coral snakes and Rattlesnakes, just to name a few.
