Station update August 2016

Having fun with this Ten-Tec Omni V.9. Sweet sound from dual Inrad 2.8s on ssb plus the great Ten-Tec CW with the 500 and 250 filters. Not shown are the Kenwood TS-850SAT and an Ameritron ALS-600 which is a sweet little amp that gives me that boost when needed. Also in the shack: the Kenwood SP-930 speaker with a BHI DSP module wired into it. Currently the antennas are a good old coax fed 40 meter inverted vee and a 20 meter end fed half wave zepp, configured as a sloper. 

On the bands you might find me on 7153 in the evenings or early am. Other than there I hang out at the JT watering holes on 20, 17 and 15 meters.

Recently I've enjoyed being part of the KT4ZB multi-single team for CQ Worldwide and ARRL DX phone contests. We've done well over a million points on both.

I serve the Thomasville Amateur Radio Club as webmaster and the Coastal Amateur Radio Society (Savannah) as webmaster and Vice President. Also I am on the educational committee for the Coastal Amateur Radio Society and coordinate and lead some of the licensing classes.

The military mast is supported at the base by a tripod made up of, guess what, more military mast. The metal tripod fitting came from a long time eBay seller of fiberglass and aluminum poles. Each leg of the tripod has 2 fiberglass sections. Then the smooth walled aluminum sections slide up through the tripod. I can feed up around 10 sections solo and 12 or 13 with a helper.

 I guy it about 60% from the top with dacron line. This time around I put a couple of marine grade pulleys at the top so changing out antennas will be a snap. This ladder line fed dipole has been replaced by a couple of coax fed antenas. I finally got smart enough to use pulleys up top and that makes antenna changes a whole lot easier.
