The photo next to my call is my new prototype 40M 4 element COIL VERSION using our new concept in coil fabrication. catch me nightly on 40M 7.130-7.160. The boom length is 48 ft. and it is 50 ohm dual driven element design.

I am 80 and have been interested in antennas since I was 12.  I got my ticket in 1956 and started to build antennas. While working at Stanford University Radar Astronomy site, I became interested in doing moonbounce or EME (earth-moon-earth) communication. K6CLM Bill Faulkerson (now AH8A) and I built a 320 element collinear array and our boss Taylor Howard, (W6UGL, SK) let us put it on a Stanford hillside. In December 1965 I made my first 2 meter contact ever with VK3ATN, Ray Naughton using EME.

That QSO launced my career and I soon started KLM electronics with (K)en Holladay K6HCP, (L)eland Ferrar K6KBE and (M)ike Staal in 1971. I designed the KT34A and 'XA along with hundreds of other antennas and soon we were building C band satellite dishes and receivers.  KLM was sold in 1982 and a couple years later my wife Myrna (K6MYM) and I started M2 Enterprises later to become M2 Antenna Systems Inc. See our web site at www.m2inc.com

 

            My 6M AND 2M EME arrays behind me and the 80MLLC at 90 feet

Currently we have 40 acres of hillside land in Madera County north of Fresno, CA.  I have 7  motorized US (89') and Triex (72') towers. On VHF, I run 4 x 6m9KHW Yagis with full Az-El for 6m and on 2M I have 4 x 2MXP22 Yagis with full Az-El. I have two 222XP40 Yagis and 4 x 432XP50 Yagis nested inside at 90 feet.on another US tower 589. I currently call the 2M and 6M BOZO SSB nets on Sunday (2M only)  and Wednesday nites using a 2M19XXX at 105 feet and 6M8GJ at 100 ft. On the same UST-589 are 8 x 23CM22 Yagis at 95 ft. On another US Towers 589  HF currently is the 40M4COIL pictured at the top and another UST holds our new dual band 20M5LGS and 40M3Coil on a 50 foot boom. It sure helps having two big 40M Yagis on separate rotators! I still do 90% of my own tower and antenna work at home and it sure helps to have towers that crank down and tilt over.
