KØMD QSL - this montage is at my home QTH but now out of date. The rig is the Icom 7800 but the tower is not my primary antenna system anymore. We get a lot of snow in Minnesota so I thought hams would appreciate the winter scene on the QSL. Besides, if I put summer pictures on the card, no one would believe it was Minnesota for we enjoy the most beautiful summers in the USA.


The photo of me was made in 2007 at B1Z during the CQ WPX WW CW Contest. I look a bit older now!

QSL card by www.qslworks.com, another example of their wonderful graphic artist work.

 I use a
Force 12 Magnum 240 N two element yagi for 40meters.  It is 85% full size and has <2:1 SWR from 7.000 Mhz through 7300 Mhz. I consistently receive 5-9 plus plus signal reports from DX stations.Several have asked me what antenna I am using.


Many 40 meter yagis interact with 15 meter yagis. This onedoes not  It can be stacked within 5 feet of another yagi.


  • It is an easy antenna to assemble and I had Tom Schiller (N6BT) install a special switch to make it more broad-banded across all of 40meters.  Tom can build you this antenna anytime you want.
