I am retired now and am ejoying my new freedom from being on-call for my working career in broadcast engineering and technical education. It is great to be able to relax through nights, weekends, and holidays knowing I won't be driving somewhere in the middle-of-the-night through rain, snow, thunderstorms, and everything else.

I work a lot of JT-65, PSK-31, and other digital modes, and have compiled several thousand PSK-31 QSOs. I am really starting to gain a collection of JT-mode QSLS as well. Over the last few months I have been enjoying JT-65 and JT-9 and see that many of my PSK contacts have done the same. I also enjoy CW and am continually working to improve my skills both with hand keys and paddles.

My antennas for the HF bands consist of three: An OCF 80-6m dipole manufactured by My Antennas, a Comtek 40m vertical with radials manufactured by DX Engineering with a SGC-230 remote auto-tuner at the base, and a Chameleon Emcomm II 160-6m end-fed with counterpoise. The OCF dipole is supported by the same mast that holds my Diamond 2m/70cm vertical. The center of the OCF is at 21-feet above ground level. The ends are tied off to trees and are about 10-feet above ground level. I had to wrap about 30-feet of antenna wire on a PVC tube because of the short length to our silver maple tree. Still tunes all bands and seems to work fine.

Diamond 2m/70cm vertical. Center support halyard for My Antenns 80-10m OCF dipole. Balun is 21-feet bove ground level.

OCF dipole north-end support. Antenn runs N-S.

South-end support for OCF dipole. Note: Approximtely 30-feet of antenna wire wound on PVC pipe. Both ends are 10-15 feet above ground level.

Comtek 40m vertical with radials and SGC-230 auto-tuner giving me complete 160-10m coverage in one antenna. Manufactured by DX Engineering, this antenna is extremely well-built and has excellent performance at my QTH. To the left of the Comtek is the mast supporting my Diamond discone monitoring antenna and the Chameleon Emcomm II end-fed. Note the feedline choke immediately beneath the Chameleon.
