The house is an Alternative Energy House and it is 100% off the grid. There are two large 4KW trace inverters linked together which convert 24 DC over to 120/240 volts AC.
The 24 volts comes from solar modules and from a 1,200 watt wind generator. There is also a backup 20kw propane generator. 24 volts DC is stored in 64 lead acid 6 volt batteries. The station is capable of operating 160 meters - 70cm. The HF 20 through 10 meter yagi is a Mosley TA-53M. There is also a cushcraft 6 meter beam, a 2 meter beam and a 70cm beam along with a ringo ranger antenna on the top of a 60 foot tower. Two dipoles are used for 160 meters, 80 meters, and 40 meters. The HF amplifier is an Ameritron AL-1200 which delivers a full 1,500 watts.
If you are looking for an alternative energy home which is on top of a hill with a million dollar panoramic view and has a 60 ft. rohn 25 tower already installed; this is the place. There are 6 acres on this lot and it also includes an 825 square foot double car garage which was converted into a storage building. The garage door opening was framed for a 20' wide by 9' garage door. It was enclosed with a stucco wall which can be removed if someone wants to convert it back to a garage. It also has a wood burning stove inside.
My wife and I want to move back to the N.W. I love this place but realize we need to move up there in order to be closer to family and our grand kids. If you are seriously interested in owning a place like this; which is aleady set up for Ham Radio, send me an e-mail so we can discuss. You can reach me at WA5PL@comcast.net.
