My station consists of an Elecraft K3 which I assembled from a kit. The microphone is a Heil Proset using an Icom cartridge. I have a US Tower, model TX-455, which is 55 feet tall (17 meters) and which can be cranked up and tilted over. Atop the tower is a Bencher Skyhawk. The Skyhawk is basically 3 mononbanders on a 24 foot boom (7.3 meters). There are 3 full sized elemenets for 20 meters, 3 for 15 meters and 4 elements for 10 meters. I use the Skyhawk on 12/17 and 30 meters with a transmatch and it works quite well. For 40 meters I'm using a rotary dipole at about 60 feet. For 80 and 160 meters I'm using slopers. The transmatch is a model AT-5K by Palstar. The dummy load is rated at 5K and is also manufactured by Palstar. For CW I use a Begali Sculpture or K1EL's Winkeyer with the PC's keyboard.
I am a member of both the ARRL and the Northern California DX Foundation. My 10-10 number is 77093.
Hope to see you on the air for more than a 59 or 599 signal report.
