Do you have much trouble with lightning striking the antennas? :blowup: Do you have a tv antenna up there as well? I think I would!

Hi crazy. In 2000 I got hit real hard. Took out all my stuff including hand held radios that were setting in chargers. But where I am at now I have never had a problem.

And yes there is a tv antenna up as well along with a multi dipole aray antenna hanging in the trees behind tis pic. It is about 65 feet long.
The one you can see hanging on the pole (looks like a bunch of wires) is about 125 feet long.

Shack remodeled.
Still some finishing up to do. Trim and so forth.

Looks cool. But it is way too hot to be remodeling right now!

Thanks Tom,
You have some nice stuff also.
I like the Atlas 210.
I had one way before I got my ham ticket.
Used it for SWL.

Is that a TM-V7 I see?
I have one of those and the display went out. (as you can see in post #2) Last time I talked with Kenwood it was like 150 for the parts.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Buddy,

Yep that was the former set up behind the 210X...... FT-100D (fantastic little black balled rig that beats the socks off of it's alleged replacements) and a TMV7A.... never had an issue with the display on mine, even though the rig itself had been very highly abused before I rescued it and just in case, I did check into the cost of the screen replacement in the head and yeah, $150 is about right. Glad I never had to bother with that. I must have had the only remaining line free screen in the country that had not been replaced. :)

Well guess you are lucky eh?
Seems like every one I had talked to had this problem.
I bought mine used and really did not use it much. It had a couple of lines across it when I got it. Later when I decided to use it, lost it all.
Go figure.

I seem to be constantly changing and expanding the shack here. I think I need to take and upload some new pics.
