This is my humble QTH in Algonquin, Illinois - 45 miles NW of Chicago

These are pictures of my tower which was put up on the weekends of September 7th and 14th, 2002. It is 50 feet of Rohn 25 with a 3 foot top section. This is my new antenna setup that was installed the weekends of September 20th and 27th, 2003. The arrangement consists of a Bencher Skyhawk for HF, a modified KLM 2M-22C (horizontal elements only) for 2m, a Cushcraft 719B for 70cm and a Cushcraft A503S for 6m and at the very top, a Comet GP-9 for 2m and 440 FM use. Also, side mounted on the tower are a pair of stacked PAR Omni-Angles for 6 meters. I still have to straighten up some of the coax and run some new feeds in these pictures!
