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 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!
