Thanks for looking me up!
I operate HF with an Elecraft K3 exciting a Yaesu FL-7000 solid-state amplifier. While the amp is capable of making 700 watts, I run it under 500 only when needed, which is 10% of the time.
I have a K4KIO hexbeam, an end-fed Zepp, and an inverted-L mounted to a 64' tower. The Hexbeam rests at 1145 feet (349 meters) above sea level. For receive on 160M-40M, there is a DX Engineering active receive antenna located 600 feet from the shack. In late 2014 I added an InLogis (Pixel) active magnetic loop which helps with 160M thru 10M. While it is possible to spend too much on antennas, I've learned that antennas are the most important part of the station. Choosing them wisely, and getting them up high will help you more than spending $5,000 on a radio!
I'm married and have two wonderful children. :)
May God Bless you!
The shack in the evening, and yes, I do operate CW, and yes, I am left handed:
