Currently working PSK31, JT65 and SSB, on 40, 20, and 15 meters, and AO7, FO29, and VO52 satellites. Also active on 2 meter EME. Due to having to setup 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 W6PQL design based 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 (currently 2 soon to be 4), Homebrew 2 Meter / 70 cm Lindenblads, Homebrew 2 Element 20 Meter Beam, LDG - S9V31, and 52 foot long wire for home QTH. For portable operation I usea ParEndFed Z 10/20/40 with a custom high power matching unit mounted on a Spiderpole 40 foot telescoping fiberglass mast and a homebew 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 and LOTW. If you would like a card a SASE is appreciated.


 

Below is my current shack. Left side is for HF and Sats, an ICOM-9100, Samlex SEC-1235M power supply and Yaesu G-450A rotor controller. The right side is for 2 meter EME. A SSB DCW-2004 Sequence Controller, Yaesu FT-857d with the TCXO option, a TE-1452G 350 watt power amplifier, Yaesu G-5500 AZ/EL controller, a Daiwa CN-801 Forward/Reflected power meter, and a IOTA DLS-55 power supply.

My new 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:
