The old NX5M contest station was torn down in the first quarter of 2015.  The station officially went QRT at 0600z January 17, 2015.  This was not a personal choice but something that other circumstances forced me to do.  Now that I have moved on from that disappointment.......

Starting in October 2016  I began rebuilding a station at a new location 10 miles away from the old station location with everything I have left.  Ironically, the ARRL 10 Meter Contest was always one of my (our) favorites even when condition are poor and I still have all but two of the original homebrewed 10m yagis. The new 10m tower was completed in November 2016 with 6 stacked yagis......and a 160m inverted vee (I see no need to do more for 160).

Tower two currently has a 6m yagi above a tribander with another tribander fixed northwest below that.  Two more 10m yagis are also mounted on this tower.  An 80m inverted vee and a 40m inverted vee are also hung from this tower.

Currently (August 2017) two more towers are in the works.  One will support three 15m yagis while the other tower will have at least one 40m yagi on top.  I am debating whether to build a couple of 20m yagis and fix them on the 40m tower...time will tell.   Also currently working on alternative low band receive antennas (beverages).  I do not have the acreage at this new location to have what was at the old station location.  With space limitations low band receive (80/160) will not be optimum but at least there are a few possibilites that will be better than using the transmit antennas for receive.

Four towers.....that will be it.  I have no desire to have a 10+ tower station and tons of antennas in the air.  I do not want the maintenance headache that goes along with that.

Please, please qsl via LOTW.  I do not keep logs for general operating but all contest logs are uploaded to LOTW.
