Hello friends,

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 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.  You will notice it's band switch is missing.  I have installed the AF6SA automatic output filter board.  Its features are automatic band change based on TX frequency, PIN diode QSK, Temperature controlled cooling fan, automatic fault recovery, and RS-232 serial port for PC control, status, and firmware upgrades.  Operation of this amplifier is very simple, power on and place in operate like it is a mini Alpha 87.

Before:                                                  After:

No more bandswitch, just key and go. See http://af6sa.com for details.

The other amplifier is an Ameritron AL-82 that I use for Legal Limit QRO.  


My latest shack project is my Station Master.  It allows me to switch from my ALS-600auto and my AL-82 with one push of the button.  It also controls my remote antenna switch. 

It uses an Arduino Uno microcontroler board, relay board, 1602a display module, and an external relay box that does all the amplifier switching. The internals of version1.0 using an old cabnet.


The front with a make shift face plate.    For more information see my YouTube of the Station Master and the ALS-600auto


Here is another Arduino based project I just finished, a CW reader using Gortzel Code DSP. A Youtube video is at 


 Information about this can befound at http://skovholm.com/cwdecoder  

I deviated from their design by adding a sensitivity control.


73 and Good DX to you my friends, Rick NY0P
