16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

John 3 16 and 17 (NIV)







Above are pictures of the ham shack and antennas. A K4KIO hexbeam, a 4btv ground mounted vertical and an 80 meter doublet on top of the house. The feed point of the doublet is 55 ft high. I have since removed the Ground mounted vertical because it just didn't work well at this location.

Below are a couple of pictures showing the hexbem mounting post which the push up pole attaches to. The pole is set up to pivit down so I can work on the antenna if I need to.





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.
