Been A HAM for over 30 years now and it is just as fun for me today as when I first got into the hobby. Like many hams today I live on a small California postage stamp lot and getting antennas up is a real challenge. I have been very successful at this location using an all band 135 ft doublet at 55 ft tuned for 17 meters. I recently figured out a way to put up a HEXBEAM at 26 ft.which was a real challenge because as you can see I have very little room for antenna building. I actually had to extend half of the HEXBEAM over the swimming pool and rotate the beam on its temporary mount in order to complete the project. Oh well like mosts hams, I am not happy unless I have a challenge. My main interest in the hobby is trying to work DX the hard way (minimum power and wire antennas) along with rag chewing on 17 and 80 meters.
