Lookups:   4506 Ham Member

First licensed in 1955 as WN1EBW then W1EBW. XYL Dee is W1MGA, Son Scott is K1SRG and Daughter-in-law Lesley is K1LTG. Dee and I are life members of ARRL.

I operate from our Condo in Riviera Beach, FL from late January to early March using a Buddistick hanging out the window or coupled to the drain pipe outside the window using the window frame as a counterpoise for both antennas. Rig in FL was IC-706MKIIG in my "Go Box" below and now is a KX3. The 706 is used in my go kit shown in the photos or goes into the Van for mobile ops.

 

On the left is my "Go Kit" that has covers for front and back and a handle on the top. It houses an IC-706MKIIG, an MFJ-948 tuner, SEC-1223 power supply, mike, key, antenna wire and cables. Next is the terrific little KX3 and my old Lenovo laptop. On top is 2M and 440 rigs, Daiwa SWR/Power meter, scanner and Astron RS-35M power supply. This part of the station can also be powered from deep cycle solar charged batteries.

K3, P3 and AL-1200. The AL-1200 can be driven by either the KX3 or K3 through a relay drive circuit in a box behind the K3. It is self powered from the AL-1200 with an large capacitor and a small nimh 9Volt battery that chages from the Amp relay connection. Tuner is an old Ameritron ATR-15 that is a great tuner they no longer make. I am not a fan of roller inductor tunersfrom experience. On top is the controller for the Tail Twister that turns my Hexbeam - its overkill but I had it in the garage! Next is the controller for the 6M and 2M beams. The box with the red knobs is the control box for my K9AY loop receiving antenna.

KX3 in our Riviera Beach, FL.  The lab supply is linear as I haven't found any switcher that doesn't generat noise when this close to the antenna.  I do get the gain of the water linear to the North.
