Brought up on Long Island in New York and received my Novice license in 1957 at age 10. Nobody in my family was a ham, or even knowledgeable at all in electronics. Everything was by my own trial and error, reading a book or talking to a mentor. Times were good for the geeks (me) who would go to Canal and Cortlandt Street in downtown New York City and get some of the treasurers at the post WWII surplus stores and make them work.

Fast forward to the late 1970’s. I designed and built a 2 meter repeater that was entirely computer controlled. Maybe the first or close to it. Besides all the bells and whistles of a computer based controller, it had coverage of the State of Connecticut from New York to Massachusetts. And of course chasing DX in my spare time.

Skip a few more decades and arrive today. I am semi-retired and am finally building my “dream” station to chase DX. Lots of real estate in Florida to install almost any antenna system with minimal restrictions.

As of today, the shack looks like this:

  
Transciever: Kenwood TS-990S
Amplifier: Alpha 9500
Antennas: Distributed between 3 towers

Double Bazooka on 75 meters                                                        
Three elements on 40 meters, 105 feet (35 meters)
Stack 5/5 on 20 meters, 90/38 feet (30/12 meters)
Stack 6/6 on 15 meters, 105/55 feet (35/18 meters)
Five elements on 17 meters 56 feet (18 meters)

Seven elements on 10 meters 70 feet (23 meters)
Four elements on 12 meters 90 feet (30 meters)
Goodies:Computers, tuners, etc.Goodies:Computers, tuners, etc.

73 and good DX hunting,

Erwin
