Do you have much trouble with lightning striking the antennas? 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.

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.

Kewl.
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.
