July as I attempt to activate Yellowstone NP57 and Grand Teton NP23
Hi all, thanks for looking up my call sign,
My home base is in Southern California, the finest city in America, San Diego County.
San Diego Bay, Coronado Bridge
I am Located approximately 20 miles (32 Kilometers), north of the Mexican border and approximately 20 miles (32 Kilometers) east from the coast. I live in the city of El Cajon which in Spanish means the "Big Box". El Cajon is known for its Mediterranean climate and Semi-arid climate ("aka" it gets hot and dry).
El Cajon City, Downtown Entrance

I received my first license on 7/23/2012.
My Equipment is a Kenwood TS-590s with a Heil HM-12 Genesis Mic, coupled with a K4KIO Hex Beam sitting approximatelty 40 feet off the ground, and an added Vertical G5RV to cover bands 40-80. I also have a Tokyo Hy-Power HL.1.2 Kfx 750 watts to assist wtih the more difficult Traffic Pile ups.
My current Antenna
Members of the El Cajon Amateur Radio Club of El Cajon and the San Diego Six Shooters Amateur Radio Club assisitng me with my Home Brew Tilt over Rotatable Tower, and Antenna installation (K4KIO Hex Beam and G5RV). I enjoy chasing DX, and making contacts with the many interesting people from around the world.
This is a picture of my CB Base station back in 1977. It was a Lafayette SSB 140, with a Silver Eagle D-104,
You can see all the push pins from my many contacts from around the country, as well as DX.
A few additional pictures of my most recent Ham Radio Project. My Pelican GO BOX!
The radio allows for either HF or VHF. The Pelican case integrity was never compromised, thus the case is still able to be challenged by the elements, while being both rugged and dependable. The internal Go Box layout and its contents were completely handmade by me to fit. The project took several months of trial and error, mock up and customizing to get it just right. The Pelican Go Box radio kit has the capability to be either powered by 110 Voltage or 12 Volt DC.
The box consist of a Yaesu FT-857, powered by a Power Werx 30 AMP PS, KI0BK Low Loss Powergate, Rig Runner 4004U, MFJ-281 Clear Tone Speaker, Diamond SX-40C SWR Meter, Turnigy 130A Volt, Amp meter.

How to connect your Kenwood TS590 + SDR Play + ELAD Switch + Mini Circuits ZFSC Splitter coupled with HDSDR and HRD software to = usable PANADAPTER
for helping. I used his system design for my application. http://arcticpeak.blogspot.com/2015/10/how-to-share-common-antenna-with.html
The picture above shows the proper connections, I use an ELAD SWITCH BOX to switch the main antenna between the transceiver main antenna connector and the receive antenna connectors of the SDRPlay RSP and the transceiver. To be able to share the antenna between the SDRPlay RSP and the transceiver I use a Mini Circuits ZFSC-2-4+ splitter. To be able to do this, the transceiver must have a separate receive antenna connector. The advantage of this system is that it makes it possible to listen both on the transceiver and the external receiver at the same time.
Some transceiver have an RX antenna out connection, if this is the case on your transceiver, you will not need the ELAD SWITCH BOX, but you may need the splitter if the transceiver doesn’t have any internal splitter.
The Kenwood TS-590SG has an internal splitter and an RX antenna out on the DRV connector and needs neither the Switch Box nor the splitter. The ELAD SWITCH BOX can switch the audio from the external receiver to the transceiver during transmit, if this is satisfactory for you, you don’t need the splitter.
