Please do not send QSL cards for AH8B or 3D2FR contacts. Those logs were lost in a move 20 years ago and I can not verify contacts anymore.

I go by Joe rather than Joseph.  I use either the Icom 7700 or the Anan 200D for my transceiver.  I have a dual LDMOS solid state amplifier which puts out 1500 watts on 160-6m.  The amp was built from parts supplied by W6PQL.  I added some additional features including front panel selection of either of the transceivers and the ability to select any of 4 different antenna output ports.

Primary Antenna is the SteppIR DB42 shown below.  It went up on 7/2/2012. The antenna is at 90 feet and operates on 80 through 6 meters.

On 160 meters I'm shunt feeding the 90 foot tower the DB-42 is on.  160m Rx antenna is a Vfed cc_sal with RDF of 11.5.

Below is view from about 85 feet looking due north. The lake is Lake Sydney Lanier and the QTH is on a peninsula extending out into the lake. Picture taken Februay 1, 2017.  DB-42 director 3 is the half element seen.

Below is a plot of QTH location.  QTH is at bottom of purple line where red arrow points.  Purple line runs N/S.  Lots of water all around makes for nice takeoff in all directions other than due West.  QTH is on a hill with a 50 foot slope down on most sides.  It's 300 feet from the tower base to the water to the North.  Free height extension for the tower!  Makes the 90 footer into a 140 footer!

DB-42 after Feb 2015 Ice Storm... New "Gull Wing" model!
