My name is Rick Taylor, I live in Holts Summit, Missouri, USA in Callaway County.
I've been active in Amatuer Radio since 1986.
The radio is a Maestro equiped Flex-6300. Computer by HP with an I7 3770 processor and 12gig of ram, and drives four 23in monitors. The FLEX drives an Ameritron AL-82 amplifier which can provide 1500w when needed. I have modified a D104 stand to hold my GM4 Heil Microphone. The meters are a LP-100A and a Meter Builder MB-1. The Antenna tuner is a Palstar HF-AUTO. The rotor is a Yaesu 800DXS with an Idiom computer control card. Between the amplifier and Maestro is my Arduino based Beverage Antenna Switch. The switch is connected to the computer by USB serial cable and can be accessed remotely.
Here I am DXing from the kitchen table. I still have to go to the shack to access the Amplifier, but that will soon change
as soon as my Flex Power Genius XL amplifer is delivered.
My antenna is an eleven element log periodic dipole array by Tennadyne,
It covers 20-6 meter bands. I also have a homebrew vertical that covers 40 and 30 meters and
a 66ft wire Vertical for 80m, 60m, and is Palstar tunable to 160m with a maximum of 300w.
Gavin, my antenna tech prepairing to make adjustments.
73 and Good DX to you my friends, Rick NY0P
