Thank you for stopping by.
Though I held a novice license back in the late 60's (WN8THM), I only got back into amateur radio recently. I use a Yaesu FTDX9000D into a YL-1000 amplfier. I have just recently upgraded to a 3-element SteppIR at 17m height on the north shore of Lake Pend Oreille in N Idaho (near the Canadian border). My original, now #2, antenna is a Cushcraft R8. I am seeing a 3-4 S-unit improvement with the SteppIR.
As a former applied physcist, amateur radio provides a much needed outlet for tinkering and I love it.
These days when I travel it usually is for fly-fishing, though my former job took me to many places, most frequently the Russian Federation and Europe.
The shack ... I am a Mac guy to keep my sanity.
3-element SteppIR = 8 bands = awesome!
Locals on the original R8 feedline -- should have buried it, I guess, but who would have anticipated this!
A July view from the shack -- 2013 perigee moon rise over a small arm of Lake Pend Oreille.
Nice (but not really that big) LPO rainbow trout, with my son.
