Do you have an antenna tower that requires climbing?

    I have a big ridge to the west and one to the east. Hopefully the take off angles will still allow for contacts. My dipole is in an inverted V behind the house so many of the signals to the east are blocked. I have had good luck on the Pacific side (west) of the house. I even occasionally get north and south stations at the ends of the dipole (it is oriented south-to north). When I had the hexbeam put together on the ground I heard more east coast stations. Right now I am busy with house upgrades and having to mow our acreage as the grass has grown substantially due to all the rain. So, sadly the hexbeam sits in pieces. It is on the bottom of the to-do list as the honey-do list is more important (at least to the XYL).

    I am also on the flight path of the local airport. City had no problem with me putting up my tower. No permit required, unless I exceeded 50' to top of antennas.

    I've got a 65' dmx tower, holds my wire antennas and a slim jim for 2M
    Its 120' out in the back yard. Had it at my last few houses and finally got my own climbing belt
    I wish I put it up closer to the house, now that I have a good 2M beam.
    Lots here are narrow and winds get high here, was worried about it coming down.
    Got some guys last fall to install but need to make sure they dont interfere with the inverted vees.
    Maybe I should get stronger antenna wire and use them as guys
    now that I'm getting "aged" thinking of replacing it with a tilt-over crank up mast

    Tower? I'm prohibited from having any type of non-TV antenna on my property. I'm not worried because the League will remedy that. Any day now. Yep, any day now. You'll see. Just be patient. It'll happen. Soon...

    M is on a swivel, SO I can Lowerit and work / paint the tower / change antennas when the time comes.
