We are running a Yaesu FT-990 HF rig into a Cushcraft AP-8A 10-80m Vertical. Due to the long coax run (300+ feet) that is required, because of the location of our shack, we are getting only a little over 40 watts of our 100 watt output. We are working the world on 40 watts...We think that is doing pretty good.

Our VHF station includes a new Icom IC-821 All Mode, Dual Band radio, and a Comet GP-6 2m/440 antenna. We are in the process of aquiring the equipment to chase satellites (a function well suited to our new radio), and we will let you know as soon as that equipment is up and running.
