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.
This is a picture of my old array. The top antenna was a Mosely TA-33 tribander and the
lower one is a home made antenna for 12/17 meter bands. The Tennadyne Log covers all these
bands +6 meters in a single antenna.
Above is a picture of my AL80B and some of the mods I have performed on it. Blue LEDS and an external monitor to keep track of the grid current and output power. Soon I will ad an exaust temp meter and Plate current. Soon I'm going to modify this amplifier for 6 meter operation as I now have an AL-82 for my main amplifier.
73 and Good DX to you my friends, Rick NY0P
