Active on all bands from 160m to 23cm to some extent.

While the above is accurate apparently more details may be of interest.

Being a late starter I was first licenced in 1982.

Currently the HF radios at home are IC7000, FT817 and an FT747 that belongs to my daughter Kerri-May VK3FDSD. As I use cw and the FT747 does not have a keyer I use an external MFJ delux keyer with the FT747. Currently I am "between amplifiers", having been disappointed with the Ameritron 811H. I also found the only time I could comfortably run 400w was in the early hours of the morning.

Antenna's are something that vary depending on what is happening. What does change is a hills 100+ ft 3 section tower, converted to being tilt-over. It is only wound up to one section, so around 50ft. Currently this supports a 2 element TET triband for 20-15-10 metres. There is also an 80m doublet fed with 450 ohm open wire that tunes 160-10m and a 30m coax fed dipole.

A diamond vertical for 6/2/70 is at the top of the tower and there are also horizontal yagi's for 70cm / 23cm weak signal SSB work. Currently the 2m SSB beam is down as I can not fit both the HF and 2m yagi in the air simultaneously. Shame my suburban block will not fit two towers.
