Antenna  : 10-40: Homemade Carolina Windom up 20 feet
 
UPDATE Nov 25th, 2014: I've been back on the air since Dec 2, 2012 and I've worked 157 countries and 49 states. I'm still looking for North Dakota.

Just getting back into ham radio. I've been away for many years. In the past, I have had tall towers and big beams and worked a lot of DX. Now I live in a restricted developement and can only use invisible antennas (or whatever I can get away with). My current antenna is a homemade Carolina Windom up about 20 feet. I also have an end-fed long wire 120 feet long laying on the roof of my house. I just recently put up the Carolina Windom. It is much better than the long wire on 40-10 meters even though it is only 20 feet up. The long wire is better on 80 & 160 meters. I will be putting up a flagpole vertical antenna in the future. I will probably keep all three antennas active. The flagpole allows for another "invisible" antenna. Plus, I get to fly the U.S.A. flag. I love my country.

My favorite mode is CW. I work CW, SSB, RTTY, and PSK. I have started all over with DX country counting and all other awards. I'll call these my "Stealth" awards. If you looked at my property from the road or the golf course, you would not be able to tell a ham lived there. All invisable antennas! That's how it has to be here.

The rig is an Icom IC-765. Big and heavy and has a great look and feel. Receiver is outstanding. I run barefoot only so 100 watts is all there is. On digital modes, I run 25 watts.

Good DX'ing & 73
