QSL: Direct (SASE appreciated), SAE + 1GS, via bureau or LoTW.

Licensed in 1954 as W8QXQ then as N8AA in January, 1977. 

We lived 40 years on a small city lot in Euclid, a Cleveland, Ohio suburb.  Antennas were limited to a short tower with a small tri-band Yagi and an inverted vee.  The tower was shunt fed for 160 and 80 meters. 

My XYL and I moved to our current QTH in May, 2007.  This QTH is five acres situated on a hill five miles east of the city of Oxford in southwest Ohio.  I used Dean Straw's (N6BV) High Frequency Terrain Assessment program to evaluate each QTH we considered.  This QTH is superior to all others considered.  It affords low take off angles without tall towers.  And it's conveniently located to Oxford and Hamilton.

Antennas pictured:  In the foreground is a 30 meter quarter wave vertical.  To the left is a 40 meter quarter wave vertical.  The tower on the right is a 70' Universal Tower with a W6NL 40 meter Moxon (modified Cush Craft XM-240) at 70' and a Force 12 12/17 meter (8' boom) Yagi at aboout 75'.

The tower on the left is 70' of Rohn 45G with a pair of Bencher Skyhawk Yagis for 10/15/20.   The Skyhawk has three full size elements on 15 and 20 meters and four full size elements on 10.  The lower Skyhawk is approximately 38' high and is mounted on a Tic-Gen ring rotor.

Inverted "L" antennas are used on 160 and 80.  Vertical lengths are about 60'.
