New tower and antennas.(HG Hy Tower 18HT and Beam 7DXX - Other are been added.
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 dessert. Fallbrook is a great place to live and a beautiful area too.
We have numerous hams and many are members of the San DiegoDX club. The noise level averages less than 125 dBm; as I noticed on my FlexRadio System. I normally use less than 100 Watts SSB and30 Watts on the digital modes i.e. JT-65 HF.
Current setup is the FlexRadio Systems radios, a 5 band dipole and a Hy-Gain Hy-Tower 18-HT. Hy-GainTH-7-DXX plus a 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. in the mid 60's as KP4DAT during my 4 years at NMR and NODR as a Radioman in the U.S.Coast Guard.
I have held the following calls: N6LQ, KP4DAT, WA6NGM, WA2TBQ, WB6YNN, and my old novice license issue in 1960; WV2TBQ in New York City.
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 JT65-HF.
I love my Flex-5000A - Flex-3000, Flex-1500 and a Flex-6700 on order.
"NO KNOBS" - The way of the future for amateur radio.
Please QSL via LoTW and eQSL. Or Direct (SASE).
I operate portable 4 from Georgia or Florida 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.
