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 was capable of operating 160 meters - 70cm. The HF 20 through 10 meter yagi was a Mosley TA-53M. There was also a cushcraft 6 meter beam, a 2 meter beam and a 70cm beam along with a ringo ranger antenna on the top of the 60 foot tower. Two dipoles were used for 160 meters, 80 meters, and 40 meters. The HF amplifier is an Ameritron AL-1200 which delivers a full 1,500 watts.

Late last week (i.e. 3/17/15) we took down all the antenna's and the tower. The main reason is real estate agents are telling us it will be next to impossible to sell our house with the tower and antenna's up in the air.  It is a crying shame I had to take everything down but maybe I can put up a HEX beam and a vertical antenna some distance from the house so I can still get on the air. 

If you are looking for an alternative energy home which is on top of a hill with a million dollar panoramic view, 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.  I just attached some pictures of the fantastic views from the house.  The last picture shows an inside view of the shed.

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.
