KRC2 band switch, DX engineering TVSU for relay sequencing

DX Lab Suite for DX cluster/stats/alarm N1MM for contesing

TOWER 1:

72 ft Rohn 55G - M2 RC2800P-A rotor,

Force 12 C49XR at 74' (49 ft boom - 14 elements 10 meters, 6 elements 15 meters, 4 elements 20 meters)

MAG 240N at 84 ft (2 elements 40 meters)

2m /440 vertcal at top of mast

TOWER 2:

MAG 330N - 3 element 30 meter beam

Force 12 Magnum 417/512 (4 elements on 17 meters, 5 elements on 12 meters)

160 METERS:

160 Meter #1 150 ft high tower - rohn 25G, with insulated section centered at 15 ft. downsloping radials. In line feed capacitor (resonant at 1600 khz otherwise) brings to j50 + 0. -see picture

Radial visible encased in snow:

 

 

160 Meter #2 Dipole up 350 feet - one end at 450 feet and the other at 250 feet. Suspended by rope between 150 ft tower and 800 ft cliff.

80 METERS: 4 square array - using comtek. 4 full size elements of 1 inch diameter aluminum tubing,suspended from above by ropes which slope down from top of 160 meter vertical tower. 80 m verticals are ground mounted.

 

Tower 4:  6 meter EME

33 ft Rohn 55 G

4X 6m9KHW

MT-3000 elevation rotor, Orion 2800 azimuth rotor RC2800PRKX comtroller. PstRotator moon tracking sioftware

 

MOUNTAIN TOP ANTENNA:

Mountain top antenna (where my son anderew is sitting) is fed through 1200 feet of LDF7 (total loss 1.26 dB on 10 meters) and goes to top of 800 ft cliff just northeast of shack.There I have temporary 40/20/15/10 fan dipole for working europe (cliff blocks my view to NE from shack level)

RECEIVE ANTENNAS:

7 beveredge directions (4 X 600 ft wires for E-W, N-S, NW-SE and SW (single direction) wires are fed on each end with W9AY pre-amps and 9:1 xfmrs and terminatings resistors. I use remote relay switching to alternate feed and termination.

MOBILE:

Yaesu FT857 and 7 ft whip / auto tuner on rear of Hummer H3. Occasionallyl use trailer with 18 ft raisaable 6 meter beam for mountain topping

Interests are band-countries, contesting, vlf and making my 80 and 160 antennas better and better.

Contesting:

First Place - North America - 1993 ARRL 160 Contest (prior call KZ3H)

First Place -#7 Call Area -2008 CQWW (all band) low power

First Place (with packet)- Zone 3 -2005 CQWW 160 SSB

First Place - Zone 3 - 2003 CQWW 160 SSB

I am only missing North Korea

Non radio activities: I am the only physician in 35 miles in any direction in this beautiful place, along the Clark Fork river just above the point where it empties into beautiful Lake Pend Orielle, surrounded by spectacular scenery and wonderful people.

Photo 1 is my son Andrew, sitting at the top of "the cliff", my home and office are below, this was before tower was up.

Photo 2 is my 160 meter tower insulator.

Photo 3 is my 70 ft tower with C49XR and 2 el 40 and 6 m beam

Photo 4 is winter photo showing snow covered radials

Photo 5 is my 6 meter 4X 6m9KHW EME array
