MY CUSHCRAFT MA160V 160 METER VERTICAL YOUTUBE - TIPS ON USING ONE IN YOUR BACKYARD- 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_51viQrx8uQ

TU for visiting my page. I get about 700 unique visitors to my QRZ.COM page every month with people wondering who has the N0AH call sign.

It was not my first choice when the vanity program can into effect in 1996.  I was AB0BX, and I had around twenty 1x2 call signs to choose from.  I was wanting an N0A for CW work. But when I got the H as the last letter I was actually upset as we all know S and H are easy to mess up in a pile up.  It took about a month for me to realize it spelt Noah. N0AH was never issued, but it was made available on the vanity call sign roll out- So I am the only ham to ever have this call that I am aware.

I work as an educator and hold a M.Ed with endorsements in gifted education, social studies, and business.  I became a teacher in 2005 after a 25 year career in banking. My favorite aspect of hamming it up is CW on the low bands- and antenna building. 

This summer I redid all of my lightning protection.  I have arrestors on all feedlines, and on my rotor.  All ground wires are now sharing a commom point ground rod below the utility box and I have every ground mounted vertical in the backyard lightning protected with an 8 foot ground rod at its base and a ground wire from the rod going to the common point ground.  

My average ground reading in ohms is between 0.4 and 0.7 at different antennas. The common bonding rod, right below my utility box, is 0.3 ohms. Really amazing, and thanks to advice from N0AX and W0KU.

 Benefits are FB with a reduced noise floor on all bands.

After not having an amp for the past 15 years, I went out and found a great deal on an Ameritron AL-80B. I don't want to miss the 3Y operation coming up so I got some gas!  But it will be work setting it up with all of these antennas.

   I am picking up JT65 and I'm amazed with what it can do. My best QSL card this year was a 2001 QSO with EP3SMH for 10M PSK. He sent it to another ham who forwarded the QSL to me in June, crazy!  I enjoy Museum Ship weekend and CW work. I don't care for a mic but will pick one up for any needed band countries for the sake of the DX Marathon and my DX Challenge numbers.

Best 73 es agn, TU for the visit OM!
