Thank you for stopping by. 'Now an ARRL life member.

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 antenna was a Cushcraft R8.  I am seeing a 3-4 S-unit improvement with the SteppIR. 

As a former applied physcist who traveled a lot as part of the job, amateur radio provides a terrific outlet for tinkering and at the same time, another way to "see" the world.  My former job took me to many places, most frequently the Russian Federation and Europe.  These days when I do travel it's usually for fly-fishing.


The shack ... I am a Mac guy to keep my sanity.

3-element SteppIR = 8 bands = awesome!

Locals standing on the feedline...shoulda buried it.

Locals on the original R8 feedline -- should have buried it, I guess, but who would have anticipated this!
