THIS PICTURE IS OF THE 3 ELEMENT, 40 METRE BEAM AFTER THE ICE STORM
My QSL card shows how my station is rack (6 x19" racks) mounted, and from the operating position I can select one of two tranceivers, Kenwood TS 940 or JRC/JST 135, with the touch of a rotary switch.
I can select any one of 11 different antennas with a remote (stepping motor ) antenna switch...On the top row of my 19" racks, there are 6 linear amplifiers, each tuned to a different band, and can be switched in very quickly when I change bands.
This is done by having the linear input , output, and the keying relay on a 9 position, three wafer heavy duty ceramic broadcast type switch...
NO QSL CARDS PLEASE.... USE QRZ LOG BOOK ONLY...
This is a view of the 80 metre 4 square taken at sunset April, 2009.....
As of February 22, 2010, I have been using "Logger 32" for my computer logging system...PLEASE CHECK OUT MY OTHER PAGE@ VE3HGZ ,
