I'm currently operating  for the rest of the winter  from my home in..... 


                          Palm Coast Florida EL99jo


   My primary modes of operation are HF DX, HF Digital modes, and satellite.

For HF DX I'm running a FlexRadio 6500,with an Ameritron 80a, or Elecraft 

KPA500, into a SteppIR BigIR w/75m addon kit mounted on my dock over salt 

water. For software I use SmartSDR, along with the DXLab suite of  radio 

control,  DXing, and logging software.  I also operate from my remote 

station located in NJ. The remote system is composed of a Elecraft 

K3/KAT500/KPA500, AKA the K line into a 5 band Diamond 8010 Dipole, apex up 

about 16 meters. Controled by a K/0 mini with remoterig's RRC-1258 pair. For 

the Satellites, digital HF modes, I'm running a FlexRadio VU5K. And, an Icom IC-9100

for the PACSAT and L/V modes. With the along with the Flex, using the KE9NS ver of

PowerSDR 2.8.0. The satellite receiving  system is composed of a Yaesu 5500 rotor, LVB

tracker, Landwehr preamps for 2m and 70cm, an M2 LEO pack crossed Yagi pair for 2m

and 70cm hard configured  RHCP, and a Comet CYA-1216E. I run my satellite operations

under SatPC32, and FlexSatPC32 control. For a SATGATE I'm using APRSIS32 with a

Yaesu FTM-400DR as an ISS packet groundstation. .

 My overall DX from all locations is 332/290 (8 confirmed by eQSL), 7 band DXCC,

mostly verified via LoTW. 


As of 3/18 I have worked 167 countries, with 140 confirmed from this location, and my casual

satellite VUCC grid total is  107 confirmed from this location.

Before I sold this property and retired, here is a picture of my shack that was  at my OceanView NJ location, along with some of my antennas there before I  downsized.....



One of my all time favorite modes of operation is  satellite. My bio picture was taken at the Eastcoast VHF convention a few years ago while manning the AMSAT booth. I work the AMSAT booth a few hours a day at Dayton every year. Stop by and say hi. The picture below is me with a group of Houston Texas area satellite operators working an FM bird from a restaurant parking lot  in Houston around 2005. Before I retired, I used to travel quite a bit for work, and would visit with sat ops around the country. In the pictures  are on the left N5AFV, KK5DO, KB2M, in the right side picture far right, K5OE. All well known satellite operators.



Thanks for working me....
