QSO with NH7O - Off the Grid Station on Maui on 160m

Alastair Cooper has an interesting Bio on QRZ and he has his own website

He makes extensive use of a pneumatic antenna launcher to launch wire into the trees over ravines.  His 80m/160m Vee Wire Beam  is 35m above ground level at the lowest point and he also shunt feeds the tower on 160m.  He gets out as far as Europe and gets SE US quite well.  His rig is a K3 and he is building a kW homebrew amp.  His QTH is totally off the grid and he grows all his own food.
