Brandon, Ms.


On CW - I am called "Les"

Phone - I am called "Charlie"


I am an Extra class amateur living in Brandon Ms. which is three miles east of the Jackson Ms. Airport. I am married for 30 years to my wonderful ball and chain, Joan, and have three grown children and six grandchildren.  I was born and lived my first 31 years in New Orleans, moved to Pensacola for 15 years and then here.


My station pictures are shown below and my antennas are a 25' vertical for 80M and an attic dipole for the other bands.  If you worked me on CW it was on my attic antenna which is a fan dipole by Alpha-Delta and covers 80m, 40m, 20m, and 10m.  On 80M I use it for receive only.


The Vertical is 25' long series fed at 12" with a coil and resonated on 80M.  Impedence is 13 ohms so I use a 4 to 1 UNUN from Balun Designs to raise that to 52 ohms so I can feed it with coax. 











Main Operating position with FTDX3000, IC-7300, and TS-2000 (Remote Radio)












Emergency HF/2M Position and 40 Meters Operating Position Using an IC-725 and an IC-229h.








Remote software for TS2000 and IC7300 runs on this computer.  Here it is running the TS2000 remote software.












Here's the whole setup in my Radio Room (aka Shack) which occupies one wall.
