I moved to Marrowstone Island in June 2014 and have been gradually setting up a new station.

Excellent Wikipedia page about Marrowstone Island

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marrowstone,_Washington

The picture above is me in 1969 as a Novice. I still have a NC57B and DX40 on the air.

I am active on all bands and modes, even ready for 479 KHz when we get that band.

I have been very active with the 200 member Fox Fiver Radio League in Illinois for the last 15 years and hope to be equally active here in the Pacific Northwest. I have joined the Port Ludlow ARC and Jefferson County ARC.

We have started the Marrowstone Island Amateur Radio Club in conjunction with our UHF island-wide repeater. We have a vanity callsign of AA7MI and information on our repeater site is on QRZ.com

I have a 5 band Spiderbeam or a 6 band Hexbeam waiting to be installed on a 40ft tower. So far I just have a Cushcraft R9 vertical and a 160-80-40-30m inverted vee up 60 feet. I have been using the Hexbeam on a temporary 12 foot mast with an armstrong rotator.

I also have a 5 element 6m yagi up 12 feet and a 2m 5 element cross yagi up 16 feet.

I operate with an Icom 756pro3 as the primary SSB HF rig with the Italian 1KFA amplifier.

My primary CW rig is a Flex 1500 which can also drive the amplifier to about 300 watts.

I have a TS2000 which is used as a backup HF rig but primarily VHF/UHF and Satellite work.

I have a PiRLP node operating as IRLP 4251 and Echolink 227301 that is connected to the Marrowstone Island Amateur Radio Club UHF repeater, AA7MI. I am the first President.

Here is my shack as of July 13.

Here is the view (telephoto) of Mt. Baker from our porch.

73, Dick
