  I'm currently operating  from a somewhat antenna restricted location in Palm Coast Florida, at my winter QTH. Located 25 miles north of Daytona Beach Florida, EL99. The QRZ map show's my current operating location.  My primary modes of operation are HF DX, HF Digital modes, and satellite.

For HF DX I'm running a FlexRadio 6500,with an Ameritron 80a, into a 42 foot vertical antenna mounted on my dock over salt water. For software I use SmartSDR, along with the DXLab suite of  radio control,  DXing, and logging software.  I also operate from my remote station located in NJ. The remote system is composed of a Elecraft K3/KAT500/KPA500, AKA the K line into a 5 band Diamond 8010 Dipole, apex up about 16 meters. Controled by a K/0 mini with remoterig's RRC-1258 pair. For the Satellites, digital HF modes, I'm running a FlexRadio VU5K, along with the Flex, using the KE9NS ver of PowerSDR 2.7.2. The satellite receiving system is composed of a Yaesu 5500 rotor, LVB tracker, Landwehr preamps for 2m and 70cm, and a M2 LEO pack crossed Yagi pair for 2m and 70cm hard configured  RHCP. I run my satellite operations under SatPC32, and FlexSatPC32 control. For a SATGATE I'm using APRSIS32 with a Yaesu FTM-400DR as an ISS packet groundstation. .

 My overall DX from all locations is 330/289(8 confirmed by eQSL), 7 band DXCC, mostly verified via LoTW.

Before I sold this property and retired, here is a picture of my shack that was  at my OceanView NJ location, along with some of my antennas there before I  downsized.....

 

 

One of my all time favorite modes of operation is  satellite. My bio picture was taken at the Eastcoast VHF convention a few years ago while manning the AMSAT booth. I work the AMSAT booth a few hours a day at Dayton every year. Stop by and say hi. The picture below is me with a group of Houston Texas area satellite operators working an FM bird from a restaurant parking lot  in Houston around 2005. Before I retired, I used to travel quite a bit for work, and would visit with sat ops around the country. In the pictures  are on the left N5AFV, KK5DO, KB2M, in the right side picture far right, K5OE. All well known satellite operators.

 

 

Thanks for working me....
