Well, a new QTH and a new station set up! We recently downsized from a 2 story house on over 1/2 acre, to a 2 bedroom tiny townhouse. No more room for a stack of radios on the bench or multiple antenna projects out back. Of course now I have all the usual HOA junk to deal with, but I do think I have a pretty good location for a VHF station. 1325 ft elevation, end unit on a ridge with a 30+ mile views to the north. So here is the evolving setup right now: On about 4 foot of mast above an old Dish TV mount is the Create CLP 5130-1. That's a 21 element log periodic for 6 meter through 23 cm. What a nice, high quality antenna! I fully expect to get VUCC from this QTH with that antenna, too bad it doesn't even clear the neighbors chimney! (As far as they know, it's my OTA TV antenna.) The HF antenna is my trusty 98' QSO King end fed wire, thrown up and over to the garage, laying on the concrete tile roof. I also have a couple vertical VHF/UHF antennas inside the attic. The current rigs in townhouse studio 'A' are:  Kenwood TS-2000x, Atlas 210x w/ Atlas model 206 oscillator, Icom IC375A, and a Kenwood TK-8180. Out in the garage studio 'B', I have a Kenwood TM-V71a, Kenwood TK-981, Tempo VHF/One with the SSB/One adapter, and an Alinco DR235MKIII. All antennas for these rigs are in the garage attic.  I've recently found another fun aspect of our hobby that is a perfect fit for operating from the tiny townhouse... packet and FM voice satellites! I got an Arrow antenna and put my TM-D72 to use from the back patio on SO-50, AO-85, NO-84 and the ISS packet repeater. It's so much fun I'm sure it wont be long before I figure out a way to get an antenna up and use my TS-2000x on the linear birds as well.  That's about all for now, thanks for looking me up!

Yep, that's my flagpole on my back patio. Looking North.



That's my entire VHF/UHF weak signal antenna farm here at the tiny townhouse.
