QTH isPampa, Texas located about 55 miles East of Amarillo in the Texas Panhandle. HF station is a Yaesu FT847 with MD100 desk mic, a Yaesu FT900, and an Ameritron AL811 Amp, Heathkit SB-220 Amp and a Mosley TA34XL WARC 5 element beam on a 40 foot crank-up tower. The Mosley TA34XL WARC is actually a combination of parts from three old Mosleys put together to make a homebrew TA34XL WARC. Mobile station is a Yaesu FT857 with Yaesu ATAS120 antenna. I use Ham Radio Deluxe software with the FT847 for HF and for logging.
Active on Ham Satellites since 2007. The satellite rig is another Yaesu FT847 with a pair of KLM 440 and 2M RHCP satellite antennas driven by a Yaesu G-5400 AZ/EL rotator. Both the radio and rotators are computer controlled using a Dell desktop computer and SatPC32 software program.The KLM 2M and 440 satelite antennas are mounted on a homemade 12 foot tall "tripod" stand that I can lay down in the back yard to please the XYL and my neighbors. My wife says we already have enough "sticky uppy things" in the back yard. (But we all know you never can have too many antennas). My newest "sticky uppy thing" is a M2 six meter 3 element beam mounted above the Mosley HF beam. I got started on six meters during openings in 2012 Six meters is my new favorite band.
I have a couple of vintage stations including a Collins KWM2, Collins 32S-3 Transmitter, 75S-3 Receiver, 62S-1 2M/6M Transverter, 312B-4 Station Control, Speaker and Power supply. .
The Heathkit station includes the SB-104A Transceiver, SB-230 Amp, Station monitor/scope, and speaker.I also have a Hallicrafters SX71 Receiver, and a Henry 160 meter Transverter
QSL direct (preferred), bureau or eQSL.com and Logbook of the World (when I can get mine to work). 73s!.
