Shack progress

Dad decided to pound the eight-foot-long copper-plated ground rod into the ground next to the shed, so I was able to ground my radio and tuner properly.  What a difference!  Little to no line noise that I suffered from when I had the station here in the motorhome.  I’m rather happy about that.  I’m also able to trick that 20 meter dipole into tuning nicely on 17 meters.  I’d tinker some more with the station tonight but I’m tired; it has been a busy (in a good way) day.  Time to get some sleep.  Tomorrow, I’m going to try to hunt down a computer to use in the shack.
