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 a Flex-6500, a Flex-3000 SDR radio, 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 both a Heil Pro Set Elite Headset and a Yamaha Headset. I am using SmartSDR 1.0.5 with my Flex-6500, PowerSDR 2.5.3 with my Flex-3000, and my logging program is N3FJP's Amateur Log 4.3.
My "golf cart" HF station includes the Flex-1500 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 upgraded to Extra in June 2010 and obtained a new vanity callsign of W5SAT in July 2010. My previous callsign was N5UTM.
