Good morning, Randy.

I recently picked up a 40' tower from the manufacturer, Aluma-Tower, in Vero Beach, FL. That has got to be the friendliest, most helpful group of folks I can recall every doing business with. Just based on that, I would highly recommend them.

I am still working on building the rebar structure for the concrete base, so it's not up yet. The mail purpose of the tower will be to hold up the center feed of a folded dipole antenna. I'll probably also put a 2m Ringo Ranger on the top, but I'm not big into VHF. I mostly like NVIS on HF.

I previously used trees to support the antenna, but I had them removed to make way for planting fruit trees. Looking forward to getting back on the radio.

New vanity call sign is W7RAO

I just submitted to have a sequential call sign after my recent upgrade to extra. It took about 2 days--AC8VQ

I submitted an application to obtain a vanity call sign. It was a little confusing for me, so I thought I would post this link to help anybody else who wants to take this step.

congrats on your Extra, it is a real accomplishment and feels great.

Before turning it in, I thought I might have to do it a second time. Passed with 42/50. KE0EUV will soon say Extra class.

Comment by Andrew Spiehler on January 12, 2016 at 2:34pm

The Extra kicked my tail, Tech and General were a breeze. Only studied for the Tech, hadn't planned to take the other two.
