I enjoy designing and testing new types of wire antennas for HF and operating on those bands to rag chew and work DX contacts. I use a DJ4BQ multi band center fed dipole system on the lower HF bands. But, it really works great from 75 through 6 meters when fed with open wire line and a tuner in the shack.
I operate from my main California QTH and also two other QTHs in Arizona when traveling/visiting there. One is in the city of Prescott, Arizonaand the other is located some 55 miles SW of Flagstaff, Arizona.
I have recently put up a HEX beam at one of the Arizona QTHs to use on the upper HF bands (and 6 meters) instead of the wire antennas I've had there for a number of years. I'm enjoying testing and using it to learn its capabilities.
I operate from California with a ground mounted SEA marine coupler/tuner and a #26 buss wire sloping (stealth) antenna (no antennas allowed in housing area). The system works on all bands 160 to 10 with 100 watts and can't be seen by anyone as the wire is so small.
I have also started using a remote system from California with the transmitter and antennas located at the Arizona QTH SW of Flagstaff. It works very well using the REMOTERIG system and a TS-480HX. Other hams don't usually know I'm operating remote unless I tell them that I am doing so.
I'm currently associated with the Yavapai Amateur Radio Club in Prescott, Arizona and have in the past (when I was working at the Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena, California) been associated with the JPL and Cal Tech amateur radio clubs.
Thanks for stopping by here and looking at my information and, if we have had a QSO in the past,thanks for that.I'm sure I really enjoyed it !!
Best 73 and DX !!
Brian, KW6J and KW6J / 7
