Thanks for visiting my QRZ page so I can share with you information about my equipment, antennas and station. If the picture above is blank then I'm not on the air, otherwise you should be able to see streaming video from my shack above.

In September of 2009 I got back in the air with a general class license (KC2VWE) which I upgraded to an extra in December of 2009. In February of 2011 I acquired the W2VE vanity call sign.

Below is where I spend my time listening to the bands and and occasionally looking form some DX, but for the most part I just listen to folks chew the rag just like I'm doing now while composing this bio.
As you can see I'm operating with a modified Astatic D-104 (purchased in1968), Yaesu FT-950, Palstar AT2KD/DL2K (not shown) with a Ameritron AL-80B.













I have several HF dipole antennas. a 6M/10M/14M fan dipole, a 40M and 75M dipoles, and a home brew 160M inverted L, and a EWE 80/160 meter. The inverted L is my favorite and I'm seriously addicted to 160 meters (1.9 MHz). Below is my back yard where the invert L is hidden with 16 ground radials (all 123 feet), don’t let that bird house post fool you, it is really is a bird house post and not part of my antennas, yet.

The inverted "L" is resonant1.9MHz and is configured with 16, 123 foot ground radials. I used a MFJ 259B to adjust the resonant frequency and to build a shunt coil to adjust the impendence to to 4 6 ohms resistance and 6 ohms reactance. The SWR is a 1.2:1.


Top side I also have 10 meter vertical and a VHF/UHF antennna, to the right you can see the75M dipoleup in the tree:

I served in the United States Coast Guardfrom 1969-1973 as a Second Class Telephone Technician (TT2), believe it or not back in those days a TT was an advanced Electronic Technician (ET). I also had the honor to serve aboard the U. S. Coast Guard Cutter Morgenthau (WHEC 722)
US Coast Guard Station ESMT Manasquan NJ
I'm also a member of the following organizations:
Middletown AT&T Amateur Radio Club
Ocean Monmouth Amateur Radio Club (OMARC)
United States Coast Guard Amateur Radio Club (W5CGC)
Howell ELKS
Point Pleasant VFW (life member)
Brick American Legion
AT&T Pioneers
Rooster 1335
W2VE, 73
