I will be updating this page soon,
Now that I live in Fernandina Beach, (aka Amelia Island) IOTA NA-138
Tower and antennas photos:
Fallbrook is not a city, we are designated as a village.We are part of North San Diego County; approximately 10 miles east of the Pacific Ocean.
Our Village is known as the AVOCADO capital of the world. The land is mainly agriculture and most homes have acres of fruits, vegetables and flowers farms. The average terrain is approximately 800 feet above sea level. The climate is mild, considering we are surrounded by a dessert. Fallbrook is a great place to live and a beautiful area too.
The RF noise level averages less than 125 dBm; as measured on my FlexRadio System. I normally use less than 100 Watts SSB and 30 Watts on the digital modes i.e. JT9-JT65- QPSK-RTTY etc...
Current setup is the FlexRadio radios and antennas:
A) 5 band dipole
B) Hy-Gain Hy-Tower 18-HT
D) 240' full wave OCFD for 160/6 meter
E) M2 5el 6 meter beam
F) 6m/2m/440mHz vertical
G) Hy-Gain 52 feet tower plus 20ft mast.
Plus other wire antennas in our modest 2 acres (approx) home.
I operated from San Juan, P.R. 1965-1969 as KP4DAT during my 4 years in the U.S. Coast Guard Radio Station NMR and USGC Cutter Sagebrush NODR as a RM2- Radioman.
I completed my service at Palos Verdes, CA NMQ and 4 months aboard CGC Ventrous NVES Fishing Patrol in Alaska.
I have held the following calls: N6LQ, KP4DAT, WA6NGM, WA2TBQ, WB6YNN, and my old novice license issue in 1960 WV2TBQ in New York City. Thanks to my dear friend and mentor Harry Leiser K1HL (ex) WA2MEW.
I am retire and enjoying life after 23 years plus with KNBC & NBC and 7 years at KVEA TV as a engineer and ENG member.
Drop me a line. I love to hear you or see you on the digital/SSB modes.
I love my Limited Edition Flex-6700LE GPSDO
"NO KNOBS" - The way of the future for amateur radio.
I QSL 100% via LoTW, eQSL & HRDLog, Direct (With SASE).
I operate portable 4 in Florida and Georgia where we have second residence.
The left two photos were taken in Jacksonville, FL. The backyard is a jungle, and the antenna is suspended inside the canopy. The other photos are pictures with the lime trees in Fallbrook, CA.
