Better late than never

I mounted the hamstick dipole on a 10′ tall piece of aluminum conduit and mounted it to a wooden fencepost about three feet high.  I guyed it to the fence and to two large grounding stakes.  Using my antenna matcher, I’ve gotten the antenna to work on 15, 17, 20, and of course 40 meters.  I’ve been listening more than talking.  Work has been crazy for me lately and I just haven’t been in the mood to get on the air.  I am hoping to do so tomorrow morning and maybe, if I can hear them over the mains noise in the background, try to check into Norcars for the first time in forever.  I’ll try to get some updated pictures also of my new shack and the antenna.
