    It's still there...but I'm getting a couple of new barstools, cuz the bench is a bit higher now. Keeps my fellow contesters on their toes. :)

    Very nice. Tho I'm from Kodiak, I'd settle in the North Pole area in a heart beat. For now I'm stuck in Florida...

    How about the antenna situation?
    What kinds of problems do you face and how do you deal with them in this extreme? I'm sure a Yagi would get twisted into a pretzel; so what are you using? A vertical? Surely, a dipole would fall after a short time with all of the ice buildup.
    How do you cope - away up north???

    Yep. I took a year off work in '98 and took my Florida wife and kids on a road trip that took us all the way from Sarasota to the Santa Land RV park for a summer of fun. My yl had never really seen a mountain before. I drove her to the base of Denali... Was my 8th trip up and down the Alaska Highway.

    We actually don't have icing conditions here, and almost no wind...just cold temperatures. About the only real antenna probllem we have is rotators freezing solid, so phased arrays are pretty popular. Or, you just be sure your Yagi is pointing where you want it before winter sets in. :)
