7J3AAC, K1NDK, WA1POD, WB4SPG, K4KQB, KG6SX (Saipan Is.), VE7/W1YY. 10-10 #7736.
The main rig here consists of a new Yaesu FTDX-5000MP and an Alpha 9500 amplifier. I use an AL-1500 amp on 160, because the Alpha doesn't like the higher swr on the 160 meter antenna.
The antennas are an M2 8-element log periodic (10 meters-40 meters) at a height of 110' (33m), full slopers for 75 and 80, and a half-sloper for 160. I have no special listening antennas on 160, since it's a very quiet location here. The QTH is located about 200' above sea level, and about 700' from the salt water of Puget Sound.
QSLs are OK direct, via the bureau, or LOTW. DX stations wishing to QSL via the bureau should send cards via the W1 QSL bureau, NOT the W7 bureau. No E-QSLs.
