We completed constrution of our new shack and antenna system about 15 months ago. Our shack is multi-op capable with two SO2R positions.

The heart of our antenna farm is built around a 100' tower with antennas that cover all the bands from 160m - 70cm. See our Blog or the article here on qrz.com for more information and pictures of our station. Here is a picture of our tower and antennas.

And here is another one looking up the tower:

My portable station consists of an Icom 7000, an LG Auto Tuner, a SignaLink USB Sound card and a combination of Buddipole, Buddistick, TransWorld Traveler and end-fed wire antennas. I use a MacBook Air PC runing VMware Fusion/Win7 and DXLab for my logging and digital operations.

We completed our operations in Bora Bora, French Polynesia in February of 2012. Fred (FO/AB1OC) and I (FO/AB1QB) logged a little over 1,550 QSOs while we were here. We really apreciate everything that the HAM community did to make this an extremely memorable and fun experience!

Please QSL all QSO's from my portable operations to my home QTH in Hollis, NH USA. I also confirm QSO's via LoTW (preferred), eQSL (AG) and via the Bureau system.

The following is a current copy of my log from operations at my home station (uploaded weekly):
