AS OF AUGUST 29, 2017 ALL QSL'S GO TO:

BIG ISLAND CONTEST CLUB

39650 U.S. HWY. 19 NORTH   APT 243

TARPON SPRINGS, FL  34689

 

ALL QSLs direct,NO BUREAU. Include the usual greenstamps with SAE/SASE for DX stations. SASEs from US. Since December 2007 we have answered approximately 11500 QSL cards directly. We don't collect QSL cards, but we are happy to confirm Zone 31 and KH6.   PLEASE NOTE THE COST OF POSTAGE TO DX STATIONS IS NOW OVER A DOLLAR. One dollar no longer covers postage. Please $2 to cover postage for DX stations.  Sorry we do not use LOTW or other e-QSL services.  An extra dollar thrown in is greatly appreciated to cover printing QSLs and is always appreciated, but not necessary

The construction of a new home has been completed and construction of the tower and antennas on the Hamakua Coast of the Big Island is completed.  The station consists of a pair of K-3s drivng an Acom 2000A and an Acom 1000 (for 6 meters).  The rigs, along with 90 feet of Rohn 55 and a K0XG rotating system, were shipped to the Big Island in January 2016.

The new antenna system is a three high switchable stack of OptiBeam tribanders (94/56/26 feet), a 4 element 40 meter OptiBeam Yagi (84 feet), and two A-3WS WARC antennas stacked in phase, (66/35 feet) with the top one having the 30 meter mod.  Last, a 7/7 stack of  Yagis for 6 meters will be going up in July.  Ever since KH7Y left Hawaii there has been a big demand for KH6 on 6 meters.  I intend to fill that need when conditions are good.  On 80 a four square will be used.  Still to be decided is the antenna for 160 although we will be installing an Array Solutions SAL-30 for the low bands receiving antenna.

The station sits at an elevation of 1100 feet and is about one mile from the Pacific with a huge downward slope to the Europe, North America, most of South America, and Asia.  However, going to the south we'll be looking at a big slope uphill all the way up to the top of Mauna Kea (about 13500 feet tall!), so we'll be rather deaf in that direction.

THE PICTURE SHOWS THE VIEW LOOKING TOWARD EUROPE, OVER THE NORTH POLE.  WE HAVE THE SAME TAKEOFF TO ASIA AND NORTH AMERICA.
