20m homebrew hex beam at 35 feet

6, 10, 12, 15, 17, 20, 30, 40 and 160m - 31' elevated vertical
80m - dipole configured as an inverted V oriented E/W

The tower is up with a homebrew 20m hex beam!!! (See below). I made this hex out of a hub I found at a hamfest for $20, 6 sections of 10' 1" PVC pipe, an old balun, and 75' of 14 guage wire (and a bunch of zip ties and nylon twine). Total cost was about $50.00! 

I am a 43 year old technical lead for Walmart Stores, Inc. working mostly on a mainframe system.  I have been a ham
since 2008 but active on HF only since 2012.

You can also usually find me on the K5SRS linked repeater system in Northwest Arkansas during the morning and
evening commute.
