The main antenna will be the 6 band 6, 10, 12, 15, 17, 20m--Hexbeam (Leo, K4KIO, who has been excellent as a support person answering technical and mechanical issues and questions even during a long weekend and is always a genuine pleasure to deal with. Period. Thanks LEO!!!) with a Spiderbeam 41 foot aluminum mast supported by a set or two of guy wires.

The main radio will be the fully loaded Elecraft K3/100 (Thanks Dale at Elecraft!) and THP amp (500 w) using the LDG 600 PRO auto-tuner.

The Windom antenna will be used for 75, 40 and 30m. There have been requests for 160/80m QSOs, and a 33 ft top loaded vertical is up!!! Also, a Buckmaster 160m 3kw rated windom. I will be making a special effort to work 6m this year!!!

P.S. Next year possibly some 160 and 80m fullwave loops and bobtail curtain antennas.
