My station is part of a national organization called Oath Keepers, which can be found on the internet at:

http://www.oathkeepers.org

See many more pictures below, and visit my blog at http://www.montanablog.us

Oath Keepers has over 30,000 members and is composed of active duty military servicemen and women in all branches, and also police and sheriffs and other peace officers around the country who believe their oath lasts forever, and is to the Constitution, and not any politician or political party or group.

Oath Keepers is also many veterans and other people who have taken that oath and intend to keep it regardless of what is happening in our country.  You should read about Oath Keepers at the website above.

The Oath Keepers who are ham radio operators are monitoring and communicating on many ham frequencies all over our country with an intention of keeping us all safe from harm, while promoting the freedom that is America's heritage that Oath Keepers in our history have fought, bled, and died to protect.

My station is set up completely different than most Ham stations in that the purpose is to monitor many frequencies throughout the spectrum  simultaneously and at this point includes 6 radios, each with it's own antenna, and some with 2 antennas, to accommodate different propagation conditions. The equipment used is as follows from the top left.  Bearcat BCT8 scanner which is used to scan about 145 local police, fire, ambulance, border patrol, customs, military, and all the available ham repeaters both 2 meters and 70cm, and all of the FRS, GMRS, and MURS frequencies for local traffic. To the right a Ranger 5054 dedicated 6 meter 100 watt rig with it's own home brew inverted V at 55 feet. Below the scanner is the Ameritron ATR30 full legal limit tuner and bottom left is the Yaesu 450D 160 through 6 Meter rig with a 204ft Bill Orr Universal inverted V for 160 through 10 meters, and a Buxcomm 80 through 2 meter Windom, selected by the ATR30 tuner, Then to the right of the big tuner is another tuner (MFJ 969) hooked to an IMAX 2000 vertical for 10 and 12 meters for the Ranger RCI2970 which monitors 5 frequencies on scan in both 10 and 12 meters during the daytime, and 28.305 at night. Right under the ATR 30 tuner is our Anytone AT5888U/V which scans about 40 channels of local FM stuff, and has 70 watts out using the solar system at 14.6 volts in. This radio is hooked to it's own antennas at the top of the 60 foot Rohn 25G tower and is used to work all the 2 meter and 70cm networks in Lincoln County and Montana.  On the far right side we have a Galaxy DX959 legal CB station with it's own Home brew inverted V at 55 feet, and a small tuner below the radio. Very effective for local nightime networking.  Various parts of this station are running all night for local emergencies.

The idea is to keep people out of harms way not only locally but to coordinate national communications in statewide or national emergency situations, either natural or man-made, and especially caused by out of control government agents.

We routinely monitor according to a national band plan available at the following link.

My station is also completely solar powered as you can see in the following pictures.

The solar panels on the tower are mounted on a hinge system so they can follow the sun, and charge the battery bank below.

The Morning Star charge controller controls voltage from the panels and is regulated at 14.6 volts max.

Below is the tracking actuator which is a worm drive with a 12v stepper motor.

The timer and control relays are right beside my recliner so I can see what is going on. The monitor lets me see how many amps the sun is producing at any given time.

I hope you enjoyed the tour.  KC7MEZ   73   800 889 2839    VE # 1524
