QSL image for KB8O

Hello my name is Jay , KB8O

I am a Master Finish Carpenter by trade . I am also a Helicopter pilot in the Cleveland Area .

Here is a picture of the old VHF/UHF/SHF tower an antennas . They are all M2 except for the 1.2ghz looper was Directive Systems ... The bands are 6/2/222/432/1.2 I had a lot of fun working stations on weak signal but needed a change ... So the new antenna set up is below ...

Here is the current set up , 6m being one of my favorite bands I couldn't give that up ...

The HF set up here is a SteppIR DB-11 3 element beam at 35 feet , fed with LMR600 and running between 600 and 1 KW from either an Ameritron AL-811 or the 80B. The DB-11 has impressed me since day one of being on the air , SteppIR is a great company with a very good product ...I also run a SteppIR , SmallIR vertical which is 20-6m with 48 radials ground mounted . For the low bands I use a modified G5RV in the inverted V configuration but modified like the "T" design talked about by W8JI. At 40 feet to the center and the ends slopping down to 10 feet It seems to perform very well and is very quiet compared to the normal G5RV.

In the shack is a Icom 7600 and a Yaesu FT-950, Palstar AT5K , Ameritron AL80B, and a LP-100A watt meter. I currently use the Heil HM-10 MIC with dual 4 and 5 elements, and for CW a Kent paddle.

I am the owner of the NW8S (Lorain County Digital Group) D-star repeater in Downtown Lorain , Ohio . I also am a member of NODIG (Northern Ohio Digital Interconnect Group) IT Manager of all their assets ,I built and maintain Dplus Reflector 38 and 39 , along with X reflector 38 and 39 . I have helped with many D star repeater projects both Icom based and home brew systems .

I have complied many D star systems and Reflectors , but enjoy solving issues with already established systems ...

Mostly Active in HF DX hunting, and contesting ...
