  I'm currently  operating  from an antenna restricted location at my winter QTH  in Palm Coast Florida,  EL99jo. My primary modes of operation are HF DX, HF Digital modes, and some satellite.

For HF DX I'm running a Yaesu 9000D into a 43' vertical mounted over salt water. I'm also remoting with an  Elecraft K3/KAT500/KPA500, into a 5 band Diamond 8010 Dipole, apex up about 16 meters, located in NJ. For software I use the DXLab suite of  radio control, DXing, and logging software.  For the Satellites, I'm using a Kenwood TS-B2000, and an FCDP+. For the  digital HF modes, and  HF DSTAR I'm running an Icom IC-7100.  I run my satellite operations under SatPC32 control.  

 My overall DX from all locations is 333/285 mostly verified via LoTW. 

Most recent addition's to my shack here in Palm Coast is a 43 ' vertical. The vertical is working well as I'm hearing and working some  DX, I was very happy to have worked Willis Island on 12M tonite with 200 watts. I'm pleased with the temporary vertical's performance and now plan on going ahead with a permenent SteppIR bigIR vertical installation. This will also allow me to run some power, I have an 80a here ready to go.

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....
