I'm in the process of buying a contesters dream...
20 acres atop a high spot in the center of a large valley. No CC&R's, No Trees, No Weeds, No close neighbors, 3 bedroom home with a 20' x 60' barn that contains a small CAT dozer, John Deer Tractor, and a 65' Jeep CJ!
It a standard 660 x 1330 20 acre lot with the 660' running N/S along the paved road (Western Side of lot). The 1330' runs E/W with no neighbors to the East for 3/4 mile!
The house and barn are 200' in from the road on the Western side of the lot.
With that layout in mind... What would you do to create a competitive HF/VHF contest station?
I have some definant ideas but I'm curious what some of you would do with the same opportunity?
Yes, I am single and do have some funds to develope the station but plan to use elbow grease and my ability to scrounge more than my checkbook.
Any pet projects, killer low band wire ants, phased verticals, you have in mind but cant do due to time or space restrictions, pass em along.
