Currently working PSK31, JT65 and SSB, on 40, 20, and 15 meters, and FO29, VO52, and AO73 satellites. Also active on 2 meter EME. Due to having to set up the array each time I want to operate I'm normally on one weekend each month.

Rigs: At home I use an ICOM-9100 for HF and satellites and a Yaesu-FT-857D with a home built W6PQL design 2 Meter 1KW amp for EME. When operating portable I use an ICOM-7200 or the Yaesu FT-857D. For SOTA activations I use a Yaesu FT-817.

Antennas: Homebrew 9 element YU7EF 2m yagis for EME (2 or 4 depending on conditions), homebrew 2 Meter / 70 cm Lindenblads, homebrew 2 Element 20 Meter Beam, S9V31, and a 52 foot long wire for home QTH. For portable operation I use a ParEndFed Z 10/20/40 with a custom high power matching unit mounted on a Spiderpole 40 foot telescoping fiberglass mast and a homebrew full size rotatable 20 meter dipole mounted on a MaxGain 38 foot telescoping fiberglass mast. For SOTA I use a 20 meter EFHW, one end up in a tree.

QSL - I log all QSLs to eQSL. I don't collect QSL cards but will send one to you upon receipt of a SASE. International operators, please do not send "Union Postal Universelle" as these are not accepted by the local post office. Please send $1.00.


 

Below is my current shack. Left side is for HF and Sats, an ICOM-9100, a Yaesu 817 used for HF/VHF/UHF monitoring when not doing SOTA, Samlex SEC-1235M power supply, Yaesu G-450A rotor controller and a EA4TX USB controller for the 2 meter EME array. The right side is for 2 meter EME. A Yaesu FT-857d with the TCXO option, a home built W6PLQ 1KW 2 meter amplifier, 48 volt 50 amp HP server power supply, Yaesu G-5500 AZ/EL controller, and a  Daiwa CN-801 Forward/Reflected power meter.

My EME array, two homebrew YU7EF 9 element yagis with a mast mounted LNA and Yaesu G-5500 AZ/EL rotor.

For satellite work homebrew 2 meter and 70 cm Lindenblads:

 

Homebrew 2 element 20 meter beam with a Yaesu 450 rotator on a 30 foot Universal self supporting tower.

 

Here are the antennas I use when operating portable:
