I'm a retired pilot having mostly worked with the Canadian aviation regulator, Transport Canada, and the air navigation provider, Nav Canada. Prior to becoming a pilot I worked as an air traffic controller for two years in Gander, Nefoundland and Labrador. I'm a member of the Tri County Amateur Radio Club based in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada. My other hobby is Geocaching under the name George D. I'm also on APRS using a Kenwood D710.
I'm running a Kenwood TS-2000 (max 100W) using the following antennas.
Cushcraft MA-5B, a 85’ Buxcomm orientated NW/SE and a Comet GP-3 VHF/UHF.
The mast is a tilt over crank up using a twenty foot 3 inch X 3 inch aluminum tube. The inside tube is one inch smaller. The total height is thirty seven feet. The concrete base is two and one half feet square, eight inches thick attached to a screw in ground anchor to a depth of four feet.
Cards are not a priority so I won't be offened if the only record of contact is a log entry.
Checking the tilt up function during the construction at my cousin's in Prince Edward Island.
Installed next to the deck. The vine is a Kiwi.
The business end retracted (24 feet, 7.3m).
Extended to 37 feet (11.3m)
