Setting in the Shack.
Equipment includes the Elecraft K3/P3 radio along with a Yaesu FT8800 for VHF/UHF operation. Station operates from 4 - 6 volt golf cart batteries setup in the garage. 2 - 100 watt solar panels are installed on the roof to provide charging for the batteries. A TGE power regulator is used to keep the operating voltage at 13.8 volts for the station.
I enjoy operating portable from my truck for the Indiana QSO party and similar events.
The NVIS antenna on 40m does a great job.
Hexbeam on homemade support and the KT34M2 on the HDBX 48 tower.
It always nice to have some Ham friends to help. The above picture is of the raising of a HDBX 48 tower with a KT34M2 antenna that was assembled from the Al salvaged from an older KLM KT34a and the upgrade kit and new clamps from M2 Inc.
Enjoy the outdoors taking care of our small orchard and admiring the beauty of spring.
Also enjoy woodworking. My Shack radio desk was made from a walnut tree
from the farm where I grew up in Randolph County, Indiana.
Blessings to you from the family.
