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).
