Former bush pilot, and forest fire air tanker pilot. Flew B-25, A-26, and the Grumman TBM. That,s me driving the Grumman TBM Avenger, top, and top right (yellow T) relaxing after ferrying a B-25 to Ocatillo Wells from the great white north. After 2 water bomber crashes, (neither one my fault) I traded in the airplanes for the sailboat. I,m now a house dad, and keep busy, custom building traditional open wire ladderline and wire antennas. Email me for prices if you are interested.
Two of my antennas will be used in the upcoming H44IOTA DxPedition. Thanks Ralph (H44RK) and Tom (Great state of Alaska) ) for the great compliments and reviews. I,m looking forward to hearing them on the air from the Solomons.For those who have worked H44RK recently, one of the antennas being used, is my 80 thru 10 mtr doublet,with 102 ft of open wire ladderline built in our antenna workshop.
I make TRADITIONAL open wire ladderline, and All Band Doublet antennas, for those amateurs who don,t have the time, or desire to build their own ladderline, or antenna themselves. So, if you,ve always wanted ladderline and/or doublet antenna, and don,t want to build your own, let me know
My custom made ladderline or complete antennas are heavy duty, rugged, weatherproof, and made from the best North American materials available.I guarantee it. I use minimum 14AVG as a standard, or 12 AVG (for the Kilowatt AM guys) stranded insulated copper wire. These are NOT light duty antennas/ladderlines
Picture on left is ladderline, up since 2008. Picture on the right, is a 40 thru 10 Mtr Junior Doublet.The center picture is the 102 ftof new ladderline, (It is NOT a fence!!!) stretched out in the yard three months ago for final inspection before shipping to H44RK. This length was requested by Ralph. Must be some tall palm trees in the Solomons. The radiating section (all 133 ft of it-It,s the 80 thru 10Mtr version)) is behind me in the farm workshop.
My own station is a very humble Yaesu FT102, Icom 730, outboard tuner, and 160 thru 10 mtr coverage on either my Doublet or Loop antenna. I regret having to use 4 ft of coax
