Picture taken with wide angle Telephoto lens so depth perception is deceiving
Snow in San Diego? Cuyamaca Peak "at 6,512 feet (1,985m)" is a Mountain range San Diego County roughly 47 miles (64km) from the Pacific Ocean,
Snows in winter are common above 5,000 feet at this Peak but SD has the BEST all Year Weather in the Nation San Diego has 70 miles of coastline and lots of beaches.

QTH Located 14 miles in-land from the bay of San Diego at an Elevation of 255.118 m  or  837 Feet above Sea Level on side of the hill
over looking San Diego CA.. the Hexbeam Antenna is 45 feet above ground "total height about 882 feet above sea level" on the side of the Hill I live on.
*Station: TS-480SAT with 100 watts. If needed Ameritron AL-80B.
*Tower 1- KIO HexBeam on 20,17,15,10M at 45 feet above ground. *Tower 2- 2m Cushcraft A148 10S 10 elt. 35 feet above ground.
*Alpha Delta DX-CC 82 FT long 80-10M (Inverted-V) 2-10-15 CHANGED to V-Beam ConFig.. in NE part of Prop Beaming NE and SW. at 25 Feet above ground.

About Myself: Although I got my Lic in 1/23/12 Tech then few months later General, then Extra. I am no Newbie to being RADIO ACTIVE.
I started this Hobby around the age of 13 years old as SWL due to my Dad used to be QE for the John Glenn Space Race, and other Rocket Boosters.

Majored in, Electronics, Magnetism and Radio Wave Propagation, Solar activity, Space & Earth Sci. Worked for 15 years in NASA / Aero Space Special Programs
Title: (SR. Systems Accept Test, and Assembly Inspector for Special Programs).

The one I love the most - HUBBLE Telescope 'WIDE BAND TX' Got to meet and work with Great Minds and People in these years.

Now - Close to Retirement I had to get my LIC and enjoy this SCI as a Hobby Hope to QSO with ALL of you.

A Good Ham OP reads:  DX Code of Conduct and Practice it ... so we all can enjoy this hobby.

I will QSL with eQSL.com or QSL Bureau or Mail if you provide $2.00 US for outside USA and Thank you for confirming the contact with QRZ.com logbook. Thank you

BELOW: Views from the ANT's  OLD HEIGHT from Hexbeam at old height of 35' - (new veiw is just better now) wink



  ABOVE: just a awesome sunset pic .. the  DX-CC Invert V is moved to back part of yard in horz. V-beam config "works Great" 2015

 Note: A Black Video means ISS is on the Dark Side of  the Earth  (no sunlight side) Please Standby.
  ISS Tracker:   

One of the key skills for any HF DXer is to know how to judge what band conditions may be like.
   (So Sad Many of you will never truly enjoy this Hobby without learning the SCIENCE behind it or how Radio Waves propagate!)
