QSL image for W7TLV

OMISS # 7791 / 10-10 # 76216 / YL System # 16614 /AMSAT # 38546

With Regard to QSL cards and contact confirmations, I do LoTW, QRZd, eQSL, and Direct. Regarding Direct. No need for money or IRC's. I do appreciate reciprocation so your card is much appreciated but not a requirement to get my card. That said, if you need my card rapidly just email me with your request for a card and provide me with your mailing address and I will drop one in the mail as soon as possible.

The Photo on the upper right corner of this page is my pal Casey. Casey and me are pretty much inseperable. He goes where I go. The photo's following the certificate below are ofmy modest ham shack located in the family room of our house. I am retired and my wife of 35 years is still going strong actively working for Senior Citizens Health Care organization with a national footprint. As you can see below, I have a Yaesu fetish. I'll spend more time describing my operating conditions below.

Below is my Yaesu FT-950 with 12V switching power supplies to the left. On top is the external Yaesuspeaker and the Yaesu DMU-2000 data management unit. On top of those is a Yaesu FT-897 that is usedprimarily for a base station 6M, 2M, and 70CM radio. To the right is my MFJ-891 in line RF power meter. To the right of the FT-950 is my Tokyo Hy-Power HL-1.5KFX Solid State Amp, it is running on household 120V AC and for the most part works as advertised. I doesn't always crank out 1Kw depending on band and tuning to the load but it always puts out a minimum of 800 Watts on SSB.

In the photo below you see replication of items above and the Tokyo HC-1.5Kat Automatic Antenna tuner that does a wonderful job working in conjunction with the FT-950 and the THP amp to match up the antenna's shown in the poto's below. It's fast, accurate, and totally unobtrusive to working QSO's on the air. I get so incredibly weary of those that think tuning up their amps during a working QSO is okay. They totally ignore the principle guidelines of the DX code of conduct. Moreover, I don't understand how these people got their licenses without having at least the basic understanding of radio operating procedures let alone just plain old common courtesy and patience. My apologies for digressing, in the photo's of my antenna's one is missing. I have yet to update that photo but it would show an inverted V configured CCD wire dipole that is designed for 20 and 40 meter operation only.

The photo below show's my antenna farm mounted on the deck of our house. The antenna on the right is a Comet CX-333 tri-band, 150/220/440 Mhz base station antenna. The antenna in the foreground is a Hy-Gain AV-640 8 band vertical designed for 6, 10, 12, 15, 17, 20, 30, and 40 meter operation. I haven't updated the photo to show the new CCD dipole I have added to my antennna array. The CCD wire dipole is set up as an inverted V with the apex at 40' and the ends at 15'. It is strictly a 20 and 40M band antenna. My operating work load is now split between the dipole and the verticle 8 band. I tend to use the dipole for all my 20 and 40 meter work as it is quieter than the vertical and as such a better receive antenna for weak signal work.
