The 20 to 6 meter beam antenna is a 3E SteppIR.
The 9 meter tower also carries a 2x17,6 meter long zeppelin antenna, a 2 m/70 cm vertical and a 5,8 GHz flat parabolic antenna for my wireless internet connection. The 2m/70 cm vertical antenna is a J-Pole having a gain of 6 dB.
The rotator is a Prosistel PST2051 mounted on a solid rotator plate inside the tower.
A 7,4 m long open air feeder transmits the signal from the antenna coupler to the zeppelin antenna. The remote controlled (from the shack) AT-615B antenna coupler adapts the high ohmic antenna to 50 ohm coax and thus I have an effective multiband antenna for the 80 m, 60 m, 30 m, 20 m, 17 m, 15 m, and 10 m bands.
The AT-615B antenna coupler (from www.hamware.de) is mounted on the wall of my home. It is connected to the zeppelin antenna, the tranceivers, and the ground (2 meter long ground rod).
In the shack you find a FlexRadio 6300 SDR HF transceiver with the Maestro operating unit, an ICOM IC-7800 HF/50 transceiver, an ICOM IC-7100 HF/50/2/70 transceiver, a Hytera MD785 70 cm DMR transceiver, a Kenwood TS-480SAT HF transceiver (control part only for remote operation), two SPE Expert 1K-FA linear amplifiers, a BLA350 linear amplifier, controllers for the SteppIR antenna, rotator, watt/SWRmeter etc. A computer fed with the Ham Radio Deluxe app controls the four transceivers plus the rotator. An electronic logbook is integrated.
And a little about myself:
I am a skilled radio- and TV technician (1965), I am a Master of Science in electronics and telecom (1969). For some years I worked as a senior teacher at Odense Teknikum (now the Southern Danish University), and for many years I worked as a freelance photographer and technical journalist travelling in many countries.
I retired in February 2011, and moved to Langeland, a small island with a population of 12 000 located close to Germany in South Denmark. Langeland (in English Long Island) is 52 km long and 6 km (on average) wide.
I got my certificate as a ham radio operator in 1978, class A, OZ8ZY, but due to too much work I soon after gave it up. In 2006 I took up this wonderful hobby again, now as 5P8ZY, and I enjoy it very much. I am QRV on the 60, 40, 20, 17, 15, 12, 10, and 6 meter bands, mainly phone, and on the 2 metre and 70 cm bands, FM and DMR (Digital Mobile Radio).
I very much like to talk to friends all over the world, contesting is not me. Quality and hamspirit is better than quantity!
Since January 24th 2012 I am OV6A.
I have 40/80 meter, and 60 meter wire antennas installed in a tower about 300 m from my home. From here I work remotely using the Kenwood TS-480 transceiver. The installation gives me less noise and stronger signals.
The remote equipment consists of the TS-480 radio part, a power supply, a modem/router for the mobile 4G/LTE network, a GSM Switch, and some auxiliary equipment.
The end of the story telling:
I do not collect QSL cards, but I accept cards sent direct (3 GS or 1 IRC, addressed envelope) and give a receipt for them. I do not reply to QSL cards without 3 GS or 1 IRC, sorry. I am not a member of the QSL bureau, so if you send me a card via the bureau, I will never receive it. I upload all QSOs to LoTW.
Other hobbies: Family history, bicycling, and travelling with my girlfriend.
OM Jorgen as a tower climber.

The nature of Langeland island is beautiful. We have about 140 km coast and beaches.
A typical Langeland landscape. One out of the about 1200 hills from 10 to 40 meter over mean sea level.
Harnbjerg, 4 km from my QTH, is 43 meter over mean sea level.
The island of Langeland has been populated more than 7000 years. Around 3000 BC the local people burried their dead relatives in stone graves. Quite a number of stone graves have survived, here "Kumlehoeje" close to my QTH.
The weather on Langeland often changes. Normally we have winds from the west and south west.
I only have 200 meter to the nearest wood.
I live in Lindelse village, the population is about 330. The historic church is more than 800 years old.
From above Langeland island looks like a cucumber, 52 km long and in average 4 km wide. In the center of the cucumber it seems that somebody took a big bite, this is the bay of Lindelse Nor.
My QTH is close (3 km) to Lindelse Nor. Here you find very beautiful sceneries, also during the winter.
