My name is Charles E. (Joe) Musgrave. I was living and working in Weyburn, SK. at the time of retirement and on until the fall of 2009. I am a 30 year veteran of the communication industry(worked for SaskTel), and enjoy all aspects of the industry. On 31 December 2004 I took an early retirement package and have enjoyed the time so far. There has been lots to do like redoing the Ham tower, the Ham shack, rebuilding the mobile station, helping out with the RAC as QSL Bureau manager, & all the honey do projects, and traveling around the west etc.etc.
I have moved my QTH from Weyburn, SK. to Lloydminster, SK. as of October 1st 2009. I am working on building a Ham Shack in the basement and I have an 80M V and a G5RV up at 30ft until I get the new tower installed. I hope to have a new tower up in the spring of 2011 with much the same antenna compliment as I had in Weyburn.
This is now the fall of 2011 and I have the Ham shack built and the equipment racks installed. The equipment is just put in, in no particular order at present. I have some work to do to get it sorted out.The tower and antennas are up and running. A Hy-gain 3 Element tri-band Yagi at 56 ft (17M), a 4 element 6M yagi at 61 ft (18.5M), an 8 element 2M yagi at 64 ft (19.5M) and a 2M/70CM Vertical at 65 ft (19.8M) all stand atop the 56 ft T-500 Trylon tower. Lower down (about 45 ft) are a few wire inverted "V" antennas for other bands. In the spring there will be a few changes on the tower, but the current lineup of antennas seem to be working well for now.
First two pics are of the current radio room. It is an upgrade from last pictures.
The next three are the current tower and antenna stack and the last two are the same tower and antenna stack this winter with heavy
frost and ice. They all survived and came back to work just fine.
