The tower at N3RD is 117' of government surplus AB-105, with three levels of non-conductive guys.  There are three Orion 2800 rotators in use, the top one being inside the tower and the middle and bottom ones are mounted externally, turning a pipe through 300 degrees.  Middle and lower antennas are mounted on "side arms" on these external masts.  The antennas, top to bottom:

40m 2 element at 130'
80m rotary dipole at 122' (also used for 30m)
20m 5 element at 118'

10m 5 element at 88'
15m 5 element at 78'

  6m 5 element at 60'
12m 5 element at 56'
17m 3 element at 52'
20m 4 element at 48'

Also in use is an Inverted L for 160, which can be seen in the photograph.

Several low band RX antennas are deployed seasonally, including a 3 element W1FV short vertical array, a flag, and short (300-400') beverages.

This photo was taken before the 6m and 20m yagis were added to the low external mast:

Equipment in the shack is an Elecraft K3 and an SPE 2K-FA amplifier.
