My name is Rick Taylor, I live in Holts Summit, Missouri, USA in Callaway County.
I've been active in Amatuer Radio since 1986.
The picture in the upper corner is of me and the monitor display of my old rig, which was a TenTec Pegasus.
The radio is a Flex-3000 controled by HP computer with an I7 3770 processor and 12gig of ram, and drives four 23in monitors. The FLEX drives an Ameritron AL-82 amplifier which can provide1500w when needed(My old AL-80 is pictured). I have modified a D104 stand to hold my GM4 Heil Microphone. The meter is by Meter Builder.The rotor is a Yaesu 800DXS with an Idiom computer control card. To the far left is my old Yaesu 757GX backup radio.
My antenna is an eleven element log periodic dipole array by Tennadyne,
It covers 20-6 meter bands. I also have a homebrew vertical that covers 40 and 15 meters.
Gavin, my antenna tech helping me make adjustments.
Here is a current picture of my Amplifiers. The small one is an Ameritron ALS-600, the larger one is an Ameritron AL-82 that I use for Legal Limit QRO. Below is a picture of my amplifier switchbox. The AL82 is selected by default and the ALS600 can be selected by turning on the ALS600. I got the bright idea of using the 12v out on the ALS600 to energize the switching for the RF and Key lines of the amplifiers. Also pictured above is an Ameritron 2500w dummy load.
73 and Good DX to you my friends, Rick NY0P
