New 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 from 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 Systems radios, A) 5 band dipole - B) Hy-Gain Hy-Tower 18-HT - C) Hy-GainTH-7-DXX - D) 240' OCFD for 160/80 meter - E) M2 5el 6 meter beam - F) 6m/2m/440mHz vertical on top of a Hy-Gain 52 feet tower plus 20ft mast. There are 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 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 from you or see you on the digital/SSB modes.
I love my Limited Edition Flex-6700 GPSDO & Flex-5000A
"NO KNOBS" - The way of the future for amateur radio.
Please QSL via LoTW and eQSL. Or Direct (SASE).
I operate portable 4 from Florida or Georgia where we have second residence.
These photos were taken in Jacksonville, FL. As you can see the backyard is a jungle, and the antenna was suspended inside the canopy.
