My home ham shack is located in the small village of Point Venture, Texas on the north shore of Lake Travis - about 15 miles northwest of Austin, the capital of Texas.
My home HF station includes the Flex-6500 SDR (software defined) transceiver, a Palstar AT-Auto tuner, PowerMaster SWR Power Meter, Tokyo Hy-Power HL-1.2Kfx (750 watt) amplifier, an Off Center Fed Windom Style Dipole at 40', a homebrew 15 meter, 2 element Moxon Beam at 28', and either a Heil Pro Set Elite Headset, a Yamaha Headset or a Heil HM-10 desktop microphone. I am using SmartSDR 1.0.5 with my Flex-6500 and my logging program is N3FJP's Amateur Log 4.4.
My "golf cart" HF station includes the Elecraft KX3 QRP transceiver and several PAR end fed sloper dipole antennas. Mobile QRP operations generally originate from our community park overlooking Lake Travis.
Besides Ham Radio, my other hobbies include astronomy, photography, genealogy, and woodworking.
I have been a Ham since April 11, 2001 when I received my first call - N5UTM. I upgraded to Extra in June 2010 and obtained a new vanity callsign of W5SAT in July 2010.
