I'm a retired pilot having mostly worked with the Canadian aviation regulator, Transport Canda, and the air navigation provider, Nav Canada. I'm running a Kenwood TS-2000 with a Buxcomm antenna oriented NW/SE as well as a G5RV Junior oriented NE/SW. I'm a member of the Tri County Amateur Radio Club based in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada. My other hobby is Geocaching under the name George D. I'm also on APRS using a Kenwood D710.
I’m not yet willing to invest in a tower and since my property is only 110’ X 85’ necessity became the mother of invention. The mast, 26’ above ground, is attached to the deck and made from surplus fiberglass tent poles 44” long and 1 ¾” in diameter. A Comet GP-3 VHF/UHF and a 85’ Buxcomm are attached and the cables run inside the poles. A G5RV junior is on a pulley and the rope is wrapped around the mast to secure the ladder line.
