My station consists of Yaesu FT-847, Yaesu FT-1500M, Motorola Spectras for 2m, 70cm and 33cm, a TNC-X for 2m packet operation and a SignaLink USB for digital modes. My antenna farm consists of vertical mobile antennas for 10m FM, 2m voice, 2m packet, 220 voice, 440 voice, 900 voice, a 6m loop, a 6m vertical, a 440MHz satellite antenna and a Hustler 5BTV with 17m add-on kit and 56 ground radials. I am planning to replace the Hustler 5BTV with a homebrew 32' vertical, which has an 8' capacitance hat at the top. Thanks to Matt Garcia, N5PTV, for all of his work and contributions to my station.

Station Grounding

Matt and I installed a #4 copper counterpoise cadwelded to service ground, then put four 8' copper ground rods in the ground that are 12 feet apart. Those ground rods are cadwelded to the counterpoise as well. The #6 ground is cadwelded to the last ground rod AND the end of the counterpoise, then runs up to the shack bulkhead and is connected there with stainless steel hardware. All coax runs go to the bulkhead through Polyphasers that are mounted to the bulkhead, with stainless steel hardware as well (to prevent corrosion).

Inside the shack is a copper ground bus bar that connects to the bulkhead. All equipment is grounded using #10 green ground wires.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Station Relocation

I recently moved the shack from 2nd floor to 1st floor. I now have a 10' x 10' room vs. the 15' x 15' room I had, but everything has to be situated differently to accomodate the loss of that space.
