My two main rigs are a Kenwood TS-590 driving an Tokyo High Power HL-1.5KFX solid state1 KW FET HF + 6M amplifier with an MFJ-998 1.5 KW auto tuner & a Kenwood TS-2000 driving an Ameritron ALS-600 600W FET HF amplifier with a different MFJ-998 1.5 KW autotuner. I also use the TS-2000 on SSB VHF/UHF with a TE Systems 1452G 400W 2M solid state amplifier, a 6M TE Systems 0510G 200W amplifier and a Mirage D1010 100W 432 amplifier. Antennas: VHF/UHF: Various Comet verticals for FM; 3 element Cushcraft 6M beam at 40 ft;7 element M-Square 2M beam at 44 ft. HF: I use 11 HF, remotely switched, antennas located in the forest. They are: (1) 160M 260 ft Carolina Windom; (2)160M 52 ft top loaded Tee vertical (130 ft horizontal center connected capacitive hat) with 4000 ft of radials; (3) 80M NW sloper full wave delta loop with apex at 60 ft & fed in a lower corner with 120 ft of open wire transmission line and a 4/1 balun and 50 ohm line isolator/coax into the shack; (4 & 5) two 80M Carolina Windoms oriented 40 degrees from each other which gives 360 degree coverage on 20M with 2 db gain. The Windoms also give about 5db(d) gain on 12M and 10M; (6) 40/20M Super Loop (40M operates as a delta loop - on 20M it operateds as an open 1.75 wavelength loop with about 3 db(d) gain oriented NW/SE; (7) two 30/15-12M Super Loops oriented NE/SW and NW/SE; (8) 20/10 M Super Loop (rotatable); (9) 7BTV seven band Hustler trap 1/4 wave vertical with 4000 ft of radials; and (10) R7 six band Cushcraft 1/2 wave (electrical) vertical.
