back in September my XYL Lisa and I bid for a new home with 2.5 acres of space, a bright quilt studio for her, a large woodworking shop for me and surrounded with plenty of 80-110ft high antenna supports. Last week our purchase finally closed.

I’ve been off the air for the past 6-8 weeks already (missing dear contests like Salmon Run CalQP, NAQP, CQ WW DX RTTY, etc), as we were too busy getting our old place spiffed up and updated and get it ready to put it on the market.

Yesterday, I disconnected and packed my radios, antenna and feedlines. Once the dust of our move settles, maybe in 2-3 weeks, I can think again about getting an antenna up and be QRV again
