My station : Located about 15 miles northwest of New York City ( 69 feet / 21 meters above sea level ) my Yaesu FT-920 is runnning "barefoot" 100 watts into a dipole antenna , about 30 feet in the air. I enjoy working HF 40 through 10 meters. I also operate mobile, primarily on W2RN repeater - 443.75R - during my daily work commute. Thanks for checking out my page.

Curious backyard visitor.

 

Another curious backyard visitor comes to check out that wire strung up between my trees.

I've been saying for some time that I would work 100 countries  before considering an upgrade to my antenna system but I've had a change of heart ,  at least for now.  I get  tremendous satisfaction when I can get my signal heard with 100 watts and a dipole antenna. It still gives me a sense of wonder to be able to work a station on the other side of the world with such a simple setup.  I don't know that I would get the same satisfaction with a beam antenna running 1.5 kW.

Another reason to stay simple is to avoid getting caught up in the feeding frenzy ("Lidfest")  that occurs whenever a rare dx station appears.  It just seems to bring out the worst operating behavior in some folks.

Sure,  I enjoy working  dx.  It can be very frustrating to repeat my call about a hundred times and still not be heard, but keep in mind that this is just a hobby.    I'm having fun and there's no hurry.
