Back about a year ago, i was given a 17m vertical antenna.  I finally was able to get it up on the roof in September.  As part of the project, I installed a 2" weatherhead through the roof to run coax through.  In the pictures, only the 17m coax is going through it.  I hope to get up there in the spring and add the other 2 antennas.


Left is the Tram 1481 2m/70cm  -  Right is the 6m Ringo


Antenna Update

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!
