K7LOL in the shack

I live in Phoenix, AZ on a postage stamp city lot. When you lack sufficient land for wire antennas, vertical solutions start to look pretty good, though a tower is out of the question.

Fortunately, the only HOA I have to deal with is my lovely wife, who is very tolerant of my radio hobby (still no tower).

In this urban environment reception challenges abound from a variety of noise sources. I am quite familiar with sounds of appliances, air conditioners and the dreaded plasma TVs.

Poland on 160 meters!

Like many veteran Amateur Radio Operators I took a long hiatus between school and my current activity. Fast forward three decades and I'm having a great time chewing the rag, chasing DX and experimenting with antennas in our tiny yard. I've added a computer interface to the mix to try my hand at the developing digital modes. Even made a few DX contacts on 160 meters.
