When I first got licensed, I put a Radio Shack Discone antenna up on a chimmney mount.  I recently decided it was time to upgrade.

I went to the Lockport Hamfest, and picked up a Tram 1481 from

Brought it home and put it up that afternoon!


Then I decided it was time to put up the 6m Ringo that I picked up from Rich at the Drumlins Hamfest last April.  That is on the opposite corner of the chimmney.


With the new 2m antenna, I can reach the Ithaca 895 repeater from the house!


Cool stuff!  More updates to come...
