My nick name is Jack, I like to rag chew and work DX. I've been a Ham for 50 Yrs. I work 160 mtrs through 440Mhz. I also work the FM satellites. I have worked 2 Mtr Moon Bounce with JT65A and worked 2 Mtr all continents. The EME antennas were 4X CushCraft 215WB Boomers.  2 mtr SSB is a 10 elm yagi, 220 FM is a 4 elm yagi, CushCraft A3S triband for 20, 15, and 10 mtrs,  43 Ft. vertical with Palstar AT2KD tuner for the WARC bands, On 40 are 2 full size 1/4 wave vertical Phased array with 120 radials, A 1/4 wave ground mounted vertical with 20 radials for 30 meters, and a full wave length delta loop on 75.  Arrow antenna and a handheld on the FM satellites. Just added a Cushcraft 17/12 meter antenna. The HF rigs are Icom IC-7300, Kenwood TS-590B & and several older Kenwood rigs. The amplifier is a Ten-Tec 425. I have just added a 1/4 wave vertical for 60 meters that works great. Just added is a doublet fed with 600 ohm parallel feedline. Look for me on D-STAR reflector 30C or 01C. Also 144.200 USB & 223.5 FM. I run a 10 meter beacon on 28.203.3 @ 5 watts and on 30 meter WSPR a 200 MW transmitter, both 24/7.  I can run the full legal limit on HF but I love QRP and have several low power rigs, one being a Yaesu FT-817 that I work CW, JT65, JT9, & FT8 with. The interfaces are from West Mountain.  The Yaesu FT-817 is a great little 5 watt rig and works perfect with West Mountain's Plug & Play.
