Yeasu 1000D transceiver, homebrew 3CX1000 amplifier, 130
foot 160 meter vertical, Johnson kilowatt matchbox, HF beam, and
160 meter inverted "V" fed with 450 ohm twin lead. This antenna
along with the EFJ matchbox works all bands quite nicely.
Enjoy wood working. Built my own house from scratch over
the last three years. Working on trucks is lots of fun. Enjoy my dog
Buster. Building high power HF amplifiers is especially fun.
Experimenting with antennas keeps me really busy. The 145.33
repeater on my tower was built and is maintained by yours truly.
Playing the steel guitar for the Shrine Band and playing an
occasional gig locally around the mountains is fun. Enjoy building
