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 www.rwantennastore.com
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...
