Thanks for looking me up!
I operate HF with an Elecraft K3 exciting a Yaesu FL-7000 solid-state amplifier.
I have a K4KIO hexbeam, and an end-fed Zepp mounted to a 64' tower. The Hexbeam rests at 1145 feet (349 meters) above sea level.
For receive, there is a DX Engineering Activie Receive antenna.
If you've never tried a Beverage antenna, I encourage you to do so! On mine, many signals are increased 3 s-units while the atmospheric noise is reduced at least 3 s-units. In many cases, the DXE receive antenna provides better S/N than the beverage!!!!
I've been an amateur radio operator for 38 years. In the early days, I operated a National NC-300 receiver and Heathkit AT-1 transmitter. Rob, W8RW was my 'Elmer' though we were the same age. We've been to numerous Hamventions since those days!
I'm married and have two wonderful children. :)
May God Bless you!
