After living in the Savannah Ga. area since '74, I moved in March 2010 to a new QTH on a 5 acre tract about 30 miles west of Savannah.

Working conditions: Elecraft K3 driving an Acom 2000A. Added an Elecraft KPA500 Amp & P3 Panadapter to the shack in Dec 2011. Primary antenna is a DB18 SteppIR which is a 3 element antenna (6 to 40m, with 2 elements on 40) on a 70 ft US Tower tublar crankup. Also have a 55 ft tublar tower with a 5 EL, 10m yagi on a 24 ft boom by Hy-Gain & a 80 meter, 67 ft. freestanding vertical by Zero 5 with 90, 66-67 ft. radials (6,000l/f of wire). This was my first big vertical install project and did NOT know just how much time it would take to put down all those radials! In Jan. 2013, a "Sky Loop" was added to my antenna inventory. It could best be described as an unequal octagon; about 635 ft long with an average height of about 45 ft., feed with 450 ohm ladder line into a Palstar HF-AUTO Tuner via 9:1 balan.  In the Summer of 2016, I added an End Fed, 80-10m antenna installed as an inverted "V" with the apex at 41ft.  The ends are about 6ft off the ground.  This is a great antenna to quickly check a spotted station an I either work on this antenna or change the SteppIR to the new band.

 In October of 2014 I replaced all Array Solution Antenna Switches because they had become unreliable with DX Engineerings 8 port, 10KW/CC-8A antenna switching system.

The "Go Box" pictured includes the following:  KX3, KXPA100, PX3, ClearSpeech DSP Speaker & Power Supply, SPS-30DM by Power Werx.  If commercial power is not available, I use a 35 Amp Hour battery by Optima an a voltage booster by N8XJK.  When operating portable this is the rig I normally use.

Lost my dear wife Anne, of 32 years to Multiple Myeloma cancer in April, 2006 and retired in June the same year to enjoy this wonderful hobby an be a "Dog Daddy" to my 4 legged children!!!

Thanks for looking us up!


Bill, K4WP
