WO1N, that's me, has been a Ham since 1989 best he can remember. Still very active after all these years on all HF bands. I use VHF for local coms only.
I've been running a trusty old FT1000D since 1998 and sport a pretty modest antenna farm on a very small suburban lot. Year round antenna include a Force 12 C3-SS up a whopping 38' and usually some sort of multi-band dipole during the summer. During the winter I change up the configuration a bit and can run a 40M dipole, 80M Vertical Dipole "C" and a 160M Inverted L. Can't forget my last workhorse antenna, the Cushcraft R7 which gets me on 30M, 17M and 12M.
For example, in 2012, I just finished initial deployment of the 160M Inv L on 12/7. Got on the band and worked a few Europeans. Always good to hear that QRN in the headphones 160M can provide. I'm one of those crazy contesters and have enjoyed operations from K1TWF, K1TTT, K1IR and K0TV super stations. Always fun, but this year the attention is focussed back on the home station.
CU on the bands,
