All contacts are uploaded to LoTW as they are added to my local logbook. All QSO's with W4CCS are confirmed immediately!!

First licensed in 1980 as KA4OIB (Novice). Later upgraded to advanced class under the call KD4LT. Kept that call for 28 years. Recently upgraded to Extra class and the new call W4CCS.

I'm a transplant to Georgia from East Tennessee where I have two grand kids ( that are growing up way to fast!!). I get back to visit every chance I get!!

A broadcast engineer and own my company, EME Communications (yes, I was really into EME when I named it). www.emecom.com

I do lots of FCC application work and field service for commercial and non-commercial radio broadcasters.

 

Station:

The equipment is an Elecraft K3 #1(SN - 2090) with the P3 pan adapter (SN - 0048) for 160 - 10 m. This is by far the best HF radio (IMHO). The HF amplifier is an Alpha 87A running full power output (with ease).

For 6 meters, I use K3 #2 (SN - 5553) and P3 Pan Adapter (SN - 0011). The 6 meter power is produced by a Command Technologies, Inc. VHF-2000 This amp provides lots of RF on 6m!! I also use a Kenwood TS-2000 (for VHF, UHF) local communications.

I also own W4CCS /R. The antenna is @ 800 feet. Frequency is UHF 444.900 MHz + 500 Kc. The PLL tone is 141.3

I'm the trustee for the "Colquitt County Ham Radio Society"which has the calls AA4P and WD4KOW.

 

Antennas:

The above picture is my Tennadyne T-12 10-30HD antenna system @ 140 feet (43 meters) And M2 40M2L 40m monobander @ 145 feet.

The tower is a Pirod solid leg tower. I have guy insulators every 15 feet for isolation with 3 foot fiberglass rods near the tower for the 160m antenna. The 6 drop wire arms are for the 160m vertical. The wires are 3 feet from the tower face and makes the system extreamly broad band. I use a basic"T" network at the base for tuning.

The six meter antenna system is a single M2 6M9KHWA @72 feet. Nine elements on a 50 foot boom.

Below is a picture of my new Phased Array for 80m. Consist of two Rohn 25 towers @ 48 feet with 16 foot of telescoping mast for the stingers. Total height 64 feet. Sits on a base insulator and the guys are Phillystran The ground system consist of 36 radials per vertical . Each radial is 70 feet in lenght. The control system is Comtek COM-PVS/80. This antenna is a real DX performer

 

 Here is the current goo table!!

I recently built a new shack and enjoy the quite location away from the main house. See the picture below

Look for me on the bands soon
