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.

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

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

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.

I felt pretty nervous about my extra, and only missed 1 question. I bet you'll do fine, too.

Comment by Ray Henderson on January 11, 2016 at 2:50pm

No worries, Randy. The Extra was about the same difficulty level as the General. If I can pass it, anyone can. :-)   Good luck!  73 de WA3PRR

If anyone is interested in custom QSL cards let me know. Here is one I made for my dad

KG5FYM congrats on the new license! Best way to find an Elmer is to find a local radio club. Two places to look:

Good luck and 73!   de Ray WA3PRR

I'm a recently licensed and in the Houston, TX area looking for an Elmer. Anyone in the area or know of a friend who might want to help a young Amateur? My call sign is KG5FYM.
