Former bush pilot, and forest fire air tanker pilot. Flew B-25, A-26, and the Grumman TBM. That,s me in the Grumman TBM3E and the B-25
After 2 crashes, neither one my fault, I traded in the airplanes for a sailboat, and became a house dad.
I run VE7MTW Antenna Manufacturing, where I USED to build TRADITIONAL open wire ladderline by itself, and/or complete All Band Doublet and loop antennas, for those amateurs who don,t have the time or patience to build their own.
Please Note. I longer manufacture the ladderline, but will be only too happy to provide information on the materials (spreaders, wire etc) that I used in the building of this great transmission line.. I built almost 5000 ft last year, and it is getting a bit too tedious.
Picture on left is ladderline, and 540 ft loop, up since 2002. Picture on the right, is a 40 thru 10 Mtr Junior Doublet.The center picture is the 102 ftof new ladderline, (It is NOT a fence!!!) stretched out in the yard nine months ago for final inspection, before shipping to H44RK in Samoa. Thanks Ralph.The radiating section (all 135 ft of it. ) is behind me in the farm workshop.
My own station is a very humble Yaesu FT102, Icom 730, outboard tuner, and 160 thru 10 mtr coverage on either my Doublet or Loop antenna. I regret having to use 4 ft of coax
