My new QSL card, Thanks to Gennady UX5UO for a great card !

Pics of my Rohn Tower project are below.....

I am the QSL manager for the following stations:

Please observe the dates.....

A52UR from Sept. 28, 2007 thru October 3, 2007

9M6/N1UR - Spratly Island DXPedition- March 22, 2008 thru March 30, 2008

N2OB/150 - From 28 Dec 2008 thru 31 Mar 2009 (QSLs can also be mailed to N2OB in QRZ.com)

Due to a postal rate increase, $1 is no longer sufficient postage for mail sent outside the Continental US.

All QSL requests require an SASE for stateside, or SAE w/ 2 GS or Current IRC to cover return postage. QSL requests may also be sent via Bureau. Direct QSLs received without proper postage will be returned via Bureau.

What is in the ground has 2 coats of Bitumastic (coal tar epoxy coating) painted on.

Started errecting tower today 26 Dec 2014

  

When you don't have a gin pole handy, a 21 ft piece of 1-1/2 galv pipe with a pulley on top works great....

Was able to get 22 ft of tower up and rotor plate mounted today.
