The rig is a YAESU FTDX 5000D. My dream rig, after 25 years of Hamming, and well worth the wait!
I have an AMERITRON ALS-600 solid state amp.
The antenna's are a NVIS 80 meter full wave loop at 10ft, -Dipoles for 160-10 meters, and a HUSTLER vertical
with 75 radials for long haul on 10-80 meters. I added the DX ENGINEERING kit to the HUSTLER FOR 17 meters.
I recently added a 2 element MOXON home brewed beam for 17 meters,built and erected by my buddy N0KM.
The MOXON is an interesting antenna, as it is very quiet with good front to back and useable gain,it works very well!
I am a regular in the morning on 3.868 MHz, with the "Over the hill" group;--- hams from all over Colorado.
The 80 meter NVIS loop works great ! I like working DX on 17meters with the MOXON. Sorry, I DO NOT QSL!
Below are pictures of my current shack and my MOXON antenna. Also, a view of the continetal divide from my QTH.
