Here are some antenna pictures from my station in Saratoga.
Don't expect anything dazzling. You can take your choice of 7Mhz-30Mhz, 1.8Mhz, or 1.2Ghz. If antenna pictures aren't your thing, then maybe you would
prefer to see a picture of the most fabulous XYL a guy could ever
C4 and A3WS at 30':
|Sorry, Folks, but this is all there
is to the N6NT station in California. You were expecting a REAL tower? "Not

who can't beat this in a contest should feel ashamed!
By the way, this picture is taken in the direction of my path
1.2 GHz duplexed antenna:
1.8 MHz Dipole:
1.8 MHz Dipole: The feed point for this thing is almost 150'
above ground. This is a full-sized 160m dipole, though the ends of it had to droop in
order to fit the horizontal run available to me. Unfortunately, I can't find a
good way to take a decent picture of a dipole--if anybody knows how to take an exciting
picture of a dipole, please tell me how!
The FORCE behind
|Here's my wife Wesley, KE6MOH,
lounging by the pool. Before my last trip to Little Cayman, Wesley decided she would
upgrade her license to general class so we could keep a regular schedule on SSB and not
have to pay bank-breaking phone bills. It took her about 3 weeks of listening to ARRL code
tapes while she was driving back and forth to work to be able to pass the Morse exam.
That's typical Wesley: she doesn't talk about it, she just does it!
