I am using an Anan 7000dle MkII radio. All of my amplifiers are located in the basement and monitored on the computer screen via a web cam. The 8877 is shown in use on the second computer monitor.

The desk rack contains audio gear for both transmit and receive. I am using an EV RE-320 and a Symetrix 528E to drive the Anan. Receive audio  drives a Symetrix 420 connected to the JBL speakers on the overhead shelf.

My antennas are all dipoles, centered on a 65 foot Rohn 25 tower about 250 feet behind the house. The center insulators are homemade and attach directly to the tower leg. The only weight that the actual antenna has to contend with is the weight of the wire element itself.


QSL Note: I love paper QSL cards and if you send one, I will return one of mine immediately. Otherwise, I QSL via QRZ logbook. I do not use LOTW.

Sandusky is the home of Cedar Point! Cedar Point is a 364-acre amusement park located on a Lake Erie peninsula.  Over the years, the area became a more and more popular destination for relaxation and leisure. In 1892, the park's first roller coaster,  the Switchback Railway, was built.  Known as "America's Roller Coast", the park features a world-record 72 rides, including 17 roller coasters – the second-most in the world behind Six Flags Magic Mountain. Cedar Point is owned and operated by Cedar Fair and is considered the flagship of the amusement park chain.

I live close to the park and while sipping coffee or a glass of wine on my patio, I can sometimes hear the screams!
