Aerial view of the WD9IVE QTH


Conditions from the weather station at my QTH


West Brooklyn Illinois is about 100 miles West of Chicago.


Although I was first licensed in 1978 this was my first Amateur Radio license plate.


HF Antennas; Mosley CL-36 Tri Bander, phased verticals and several wire antennas. Picture is looking to the North East.


Another view of the HF antennas looking to the East.


Ground radials being installed around one of the verticals, I did this in the fall after the last mowing. Radials are laid on the ground and secured with pins. I let the grass grow long the following spring before mowing, The grass has grown over the radials and I've never snagged one with the mower, not yet anyway. Each vertical has 60 radials 66 feet long around the base, a bit over 2 miles of radial wires.


VHF/UHF and 6 meter antennas mounted on the old TV antenna tower along side the house.

Here is a cool view from the tower above looking to the West. 


built it from a kit and the old Eimac tubes served me well over the past 30 plus years.


begrudgingly did a refresh with Chinese substitutes and the old "gal" still puts out some pretty good power

panorama of the dungeon 


SSB HF rigs; Kenwood TS-590 & TS-2000, SB220 amp.


Some of my boat anchors for HF AM. 


Collins 20V2 and Gates BC500 broadcast transmitter converted to operate on 160m. (R390 rcvr on bench)


The QTH security system shown below.


Shown below our Beagle Puke, she can sniff out even the most stealthy intruder.


Below is our dog Carter, 85 pounds of Canine with sharp teeth.

Below is our dog Shadow, 65 pounds of pure bitch. If you are going to try to pull off any funny business at my QTH you'll have to deal with Shadow and her pal Carter.
