QTH and SHACK
is my humble QTH in Algonquin, Illinois - 45 miles NW of Chicago
are pictures of my tower which was put up on the weekends of September
7th and 14th, 2002. It is 50 feet of Rohn 25 with a 3 foot top
section. This is my new antenna setup that was installed the weekends
of September 20th and 27th, 2003. The arrangement consists of
a Bencher Skyhawk for HF, a modified KLM 2M-22C (horizontal elements
only) for 2m, a Cushcraft 719B for 70cm and a Cushcraft A503S
for 6m and at the very top, a Comet GP-9 for 2m and 440 FM use.
Also, side mounted on the tower are a pair of stacked PAR Omni-Angles
for 6 meters. I still have to straighten up some of the coax and
run some new feeds in these pictures!
