  Not Low At All: I've never operated below VHF.
  Conditionally Low: I only operate HF on Field Day or at another's QTH.

Spotlight W4SK Shack
W4SK Shack Definitely un-fancy compared to the other well-decorated shacks currently being highlighted! Ten-Tec Omni 6+, Centurion, Argosy II-D, and Scout; and an Elecraft K-1. Antennas are Force C31-XR at 85 feet; Force WARC 2/2 at 95 feet; and double bazookas for 80m and 40m at 75 feet. I know there's a microphone around here somewhere....

Strays Add a Stray!
As of 1 January 2018, CORN is the official grain of the State of Illinois. Given how much our elected officials contribute to the supply, it's an appropriate choice.
