Hi Ya'll, This is a picture of my very homebrew yagi at 9 ft above gnd. It is made from 5 different types of beams I scrounged from trash piles after hurricane Katrina took our Gulf Coast away in 2005. The yagi operates as 4 elements on 10, 12, 15, 17, 20 and dipole on 30 and sometimes 40. The boom is 22 ft long but now that I have 301 dxcc conf. on LOTW with it plus my 40/80 fan dipole I'm going to shrink it down to a 10 ft boom with rotatable dipoles on each end and go up to 50 or 60 ft, same bands will be covered, also will adding my newly built 4 element 6 mtr yagi on top of dipoles.

I became kn5oaz in 1957 and k5oaz one year later and have been the same since-57 years so far.

The household here includes xyl-kc5nmi. son-kc5mnm, daughter-in-law-ke5nsc, grandson (age 13 studing for gen)-kf5nwf and 3 grandkids, ages 6 thru 10, studing for tech and code.

Rigs here now consist of old FT1000mp, new icom 7200 (grandson's rig), old SB220 and 2 mtr fm rigs for local repeaters, mainly ka5vfu dx info rptr on 147.375. I am life member of the K5GDX dx club and operate the k5gdx dx info net on friday nights.

Since I no longer have a deepsea fishing boat and I am retired from the Space Shuttle program I have plenty of time for ham radio, fishing in my pond and raising my gardens. I lost all rigs, logbooks and qsl cards when Katrina washed us 70 miles north of the gulfcoast to a new qth but starting all over reminds me of my first qso's as a novice-it has been super fun again!!! I operate only cw and ssb now but may add digital someday. I hope to see ya'll on the bands, 73, Terry
