Aerial view of the WD9IVE 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.
Another view of the HF antennas.
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.
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.
The XYL and I.

ps: the fat guy up on the tower is WD9IVE....
