Age is 68 and been a ham since I was 13 years old, but life got in the way of my hobbies so I was inactive for 45 years -  finally getting back on the air in November, 2010.  Equipment includes an Icom 7700, Icom 7300 and a PW1 amp/tuner. Antennas are a Mosley Pro67-C-3 on a HDX555 crank-up tower, and a Hy Gain Hy Tower vertical. SKCC # 7645. FISTS #15399.

I replaced my Hy Gain TH11-DX with the Mosley recently (November, 2015).  The TH11 was a fabulous antenna but I'm excited to now have 7 bands, including 30M & 40M on a single yagi.

   

The tilt-over tower allowed two old people (my wife and I) to install this monster antenna using just a step ladder, winch on my ATV and a few engineering tricks.

There is a 3 ft droop in the 43 ft elements of the Pro67-C-3.

I'm a retired Electrical Engineer and worked as a Process Control Specialist for 3M and Honeywell. After retirement in 2005, we sold our house in the Twin Cites and moved fulltime to our lake home located in Northern Minnesota.

    

QTH is located about 180 miles north of Minneapolis. We love Minnesota summers so much we brave the rigors of Northern Minnesota winters where temperatures of -30 degrees F are common and have had -50 degrees F (-45 C) on two occasions since we've been here. Here's what the QTH looks like in the summer.

And below is what the QTH looks like during the 9 months of winter:
