I am a retired electrical engineer and relocated to Aiken SC to enjoy the warm southern climate and hospitality..

My main transceiver is a Flex 6500 (on the far right). On the right is an  Ameritron ALS-600 linear amplifier with an LDG-AT-600ProII autotuner. On the far left is my Go Box with a Icom IC-7100 for DSTAR operation, an Alinco DR-635T and Uniden BCD536HP scanner,

My Computer is a homebrewed AMD quad-core Windows 10. I use FLDIGI for psk and N3FJP ACLog for logging.

Antennas:

For several years (last sunspot maximum) I operated in an antenna-restricted townhouse community on the 80-10 meter HF bands and 2 meter VHF band. My antennas were all in the attic of my townhouse. For 40 meters I used a "Slinky" antenna 24 ft. long. On 20-10 meters I used sets of fan dipoles. My 80 meter antenna was a short (30 ft) tophat loaded vertical. A vertical wire ran from the building soffit to the ground just outside the basement shack. The tophat is a wire loop layed on the attic floor. Four buried ground radials completed the antenna. My country total with these simple antennas is 113 worked in all modes, 84 confirmed.

For more information and pictures on these antennas as well as my current station, see my web site. On 2 meters there was an attic mounted J-pole. I have also successfully used an AEA Isoloop antenna in the attic.  You can check my current QSOs and search my log below.

My current DXCC record is 300 countries confirmed (mixed, current & deleted). I have 5BDXCC.  I have 216 countries confirmed (DXCC #3,210) in digital modes. On 160M, I have 45 states, and 27 countries confirmed. Looking for AK, HI, NE, OR, NV.

5BDXCC
