A Mosley pro 92 beam covering 10,12,15,18,20,40 meters only one years old
A two element 30 meter beam
M2 Orion rotator with two control units

It needs a little TLC which when the weather warms up a bit we will start working on it

We are hoping I set this up for the club to use in the future to enjoy the great benefits of a directional antenna

The January 4th blizzard really made my antennas do a dance. K2TV

12/24/2017

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the shack
The rig was turned off and the mic cord lay slack
The antenna rotor had made its last turn, the tubes in the linear had long ceased to burn.
I sat there relaxing and took off my specs, preparing to daydream of Armchair DX
When suddenly outside I heard such a sound, I dashed out the door to see what was around.
The moon shone down brightly and lighted the night. For sure propagation for the low bands was right.
I peered toward the roof where I heard all the racket and there was some guy in a red, fur-trimmed jacket!
I stood there perplexed in a manner quite giddy: Just who WAS this stranger? di di dah dah di dit?
He looked very much like an FCC guy who'd come to check up on some bad TVI.
I shouted to him: "Old man...QR-Zed?"
"Hey you by the chimney all dressed up in red!"
I suddenly knew when I heard sleigh bells jingle
The guy on the rooftop was Jolly Kris Kringle
He had a big sack full of amateur gear which was a big load for his prancing reindeer.
Transmitters, receivers, for cabinets and racks
Some meters and scopes and a lot of co-ax.
He said not a word 'cause he'd finished his work.
He picked up his sack and he turned with a jerk.
As he leaped to his sleigh, he shouted with glee
And I knew in a moment he'd be QRT.
I heard him transmit as he flew o'er the trees
"Merry Christmas to all, and to all seventy-three."
"Ho Ho Ho"

I put in to register on D-Star through your website registration page and three days later nothing. So I registered on a national website and just got my confirmation. You not have a registration page at https://w2tob.dstargateway.org/Dstar.do if you do not intend to register people. Very disappointing de N2LRB

Hi "Last Man Standing" ham radio community. The cast & crew are off for the Thanksgiving holiday. We expect our next on-air operation to be on Tuesday, December 4th. Tune up your CW skills because KA6LMS will be operating CW on that date.
KA6LMS guest host, Gary - KN4AQ had cast member, Jet Jurgensmeyer who plays "Boyd" stop by and get on the radio. Here's the video. Please share with your friends.
KA6LMS will operate TODAY, November 6th in two time-slots. We'll be on the air for a short while around 23:45 UTC and again around 04:45 UTC. KA6LMS welcomes the team from Ham Radio Now, Gary Pierce (KN4AQ) and David Goldenberg (W0DHG) to our station. As always, we’ll determine the band with the best propagation and post the frequency here before the activation. Successful contacts can send a SASE to receive our QSL card. Please share this information with your friends.
