    You notice that the recording equipment " I was in broadcasting 37 years " So that stuff has to be there or I am not at all happy! The equipment all connects to a tower 45 feet tall with a Mosley TA 33 JR on it. When I am on the 75 Meter Band I use a Loop antenna and on 160 Meters my antenna is a inverted Vee up around 40 feet. The ends of this antenna are very low. My Equipment at present is a Kenwood TS-440 and Heath SB-220 Amplifier. For two meters I am using a Kenwood TM-231 connected to a ISO Pole that is around 30 feet in the air, since I live on top a hill that makes local operation very good. My operating during the past 40 plus years has been mainly on 75 Meters. I like 160 and the friendly people that are there, so more time will be spent there in my retirement that is ahead.
