Just wanted to share this photo with others.

Guess Who?






The Photos below are my meager attempt at a Ham Station.

New Addition to the Shack, 7 June 2012, Yaesu FT-2000


Nice Hobby! 11/01/2011

Update: 11-1-11, Installed new K4KIO 6 band Hexbeam @ 44Feet.

Homebrew tilt over assembly-worked well!

35foot Universal Tower (aluminum)9 feet of mast at the HEX.

2000 lb winch-Menards-$80.00

Grounding: Two 5/8'X 8 foot long copperclad groundrods to tower legs with #4 solid copper wire.

Trial winch run, two tower sections up.

Hexbeam in place-ready for the winch! N8JGG on the roof.

Thanks to: L to R, W8JER(Me)-WD8PER(Jeff)-N8JGG(Denny)-AJ8T(Ted)

It's up! With 14 element 2 meter yagi and 4 element six meter yagi below.(note the W8YXT 220 link) 10-01-2012


Stabilizing the tower in lieu of guy wires. All legs are sprung. Two legs in front on 350 lb pull porch swing springs

to turnbuckles at eyebolts into the wall under soffit. Center leg pulled against solid brace to wall, yet sprung with

compression springs on the nut side of the U-bolt. Theory is to not disturb the stress transfere integrity of the tower

structure itself yet afford a fair degree of vertical stability.

What a Beautiful sight!

Hexbeam repaired and Ice Cords installed, 05/29/2012.

New Innovantenna 4 element loop fed Yagi for six meters.

Preliminary results-Amazing!

One week on the bands with barefoot TS 590S:
