    Dream Home?

    Nice area for sure. The yard wasn't landscaped yet when I was out there. Bad place for a tower and antenna, the neighbors kept telling him.

    Dream Home?

    Yep, thats W6GX. Check on his QRZ page. I helped him get the antenna in the air. He also had a FTDX5000. We had planned to do some contesting up until I moved to WV

    Dream Home?

    That looks a lot like a house at Carter Lake in Larimer County CO. I helped get that antenna in the air. Could it be?

    The Wasatch Front and Range are always having interesting weather. I miss traveling that way.

    You need to use the adverb, 'torrential'. That is an awesome storm!

    2WR2811 Eli

    I was hooked on radio and DX back in the 70's. Spent all my hobby money at Radio Shack. I was away from the radio for many years, spending my time playing with computers. About 2009 I was cleaning out a closet and came across my forgotten radio equipment. I decided to search the internet to see if the vintage CBs had any value. I was surprised at all the hobby material that was online. I hooked up a CB, threw a wire over the tree in the backyard. I made contact with WR2811 that afternoon. Later that same day searching the internet I came across a chat room where Eli and I recognized we had made radio contact earlier in the day. I joined the club and have had a blast. I feel privileged to be part of something special.
