A Little About My Station...

​My Main radio is a Yaesu FT991A, and right now my Only HF radio.  Its Supplied with Power using a Alinco 30amp power supply, and Also a Bioenno Lithium Ion Battery Backup system which is charged by a solar panel made for lithium Ion battery's. (In Work)

 Attached to this Radio, are a tuner and amplifier. Those in-turn feed my 3 HF antennas via LMR 400 Coax and / or Ladder line. You can see my home-made grounding and switching station on the wall. Its thick copper for RF grounding through the antenna switches. It is attached with copper straps directly to a serise of 4 grounding rods on the other side of the wall.

 The HF antennas are      1. A vertical 25 ft CHA 250bx @ Apx 705' asl.       2. A mini G5RV wire antenna     3. A 102 Foot Ladder Line Fed Dipole

    UHF Antennas are      1. A Diamond Vertical @ 690' asl                            2. A Discone antenna 650' asl      3. A locally made dual band J-Pole antenna  

Other Radios are a matched set of Yaesu FTM-400's, a yaesu FT-60r, a yaesu FT2DR, and a Laptop that allows remote control, through my phone, of my main radio(s).

Other:   simple gauges, meters, dummy loads, high speed - high res PC with a table sized Ultra High Def Monitor, and of course, the internet.
