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 .
Like said . If it fits here . It fits anywhere .
I also run a SteppIR , SmallIR vertical which is 20-6m with 48 radials ground mounted .
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 .
