The 6 element Hy-Gain TH6DXX, (which has 3 elements on 15 and 20, and 4
10m on a 24 foot boom) and the M2 6 meter beam above it. The 80m inverted vee hangs from the
outrigger, and other wire antennas are visible to the left of the Rohn 45/25 tower.

we installed the TH6 antenna, follow this link
Here is the current antenna farm:
Diamond X-50 co-linear
@ 30 ft (9,1 m)
6 meters- M2 three
element yagi at 60 ft (18,3 m)
Hy-Gain TH6DXX six element yagi at 50 ft (15,2 m). Rotator is
an Alliance HD-73
40 meters- Full wave slopers, SE (US/SA), SW (Pacific) and NE (EU), switched by an Ameritron RC-4
remote coax switch, also inverted vee with apex at 50 feet
80 meters- 1/2 wave inverted vee,
apex at 50 feet (15,2 m), facing E/W, and a 1/4 wave sloper
pointing East (USA/SA)
160 meters- 1/4 wave
slopers, facing SE (US/SA), SW (Pacific), and NE (EU)
Low Band Receive-
DX Engineering dual directional 360 foot
(109,7 m) Beverage oriented due North/South, used on 40/80/160M, six feet (1,8
m) off the ground.

Future Antenna Plans- Eventually, we will get a beam up for 40M on a separate
tower, and a K9AY loop up for low band receive towards the east/west......
