My Ham Radio Interests
After being out of Ham Radio for quite some time (roughly 19 years) I'm just now getting back into the hobby.

I've also lost my "antenna tree" due to rot, so I'm now working on configuring an inverted L so I can get my little TS-120 back on the air.

Update: I now have a Carolina Windom 160 Special up in the air, although it's only 20 feet up so the last 2 feet of the vertical radiator and the balun are on the ground. I'll get a standoff tower up soon to get it up to 30 feet or so.

Update 2: I now have a Kenwood TS-430S which is incredible compared to the TS-120.

Update 3: I now have a refurbished Heathkit HW-101 Transceiver, Collins 30L-1 Linear and Collins 180S-1 Antenna Tuner. Finally I have the ability to get on the air with some "fire in the wire" and with an all tubes station.

Yesterday we welcomed our third child, our first boy, into the family. Both Mom and baby are doing well. I haven't been able to respond to all requests regarding MyHamShack.com lately - I'll get to them in the next few days.
