I'm Located 1/4 mile from the Gulf of Mexico. And miles from the Clearwater Beach.
My ground elevation is 35 feet above sea level or (23.352 meters) high. I'm a transplant from Middlefield Ohio . Been in Florida since 1995. Every thing I need to operate is at my fingers here in my compact station. I live in a Mobil Home Park with a small lot but all works great for me. We do what it takes to make it work that's why we are Hamís.

Every thing I need to operate is at my fingers here in my compact station. I live in a Mobile Home Park with a small lot but all works great for me. We do what it takes to make it work that's why we are Ham's. l am Still building and putting my station together , how about you? I believe that a station never gets finished because it grows like the operator. A station is only as effective as its antenna system.
My QTH got smaller antennas are now hidden in trees. But if your looking me up I guess the radio and antenna's are working. Been a ham for about 30 plus years.
And what started all this was a pair soup cans and the string from Cub Scouts then came a Fox Hole WWII receiver in a Cigar Box ( I still have it ). That's what started me in the world of receiving combination.
Please don't forget our Native American's for their help in WW II . They were called the Wind Talkers , they saved a lot for GI's lives through radio commutations with their native tongue.
