UPDATE:  WW8OH (EM89) has raised the tower to 50 ft.  Another 10 ft of mast should go up this week.
A 14 el 440 MHz yagi ( horiz and vert elements) is planned for 60 ft,  a pair of 10 el yagis for 2M will be at 55 ft, and the 5 el KLM 6M yagi will be at 51 ft.

IC7600 for 6M puts out 100w.  Working on a 200w amp for 2/70cm.

Lots of daily openings seen on the www to the south and west.

SSB, FM and CW modes planned.

My partner and I will be running multi-op under his call (K7NG) from near the top of CN72. We will be active on 6, 2, 222 (FM Only) and 432.

I will work some 6 & 2 meter SSB but NOT keeping score for myself.Not any FUN to me having to log with a computer & work stations at the same time being slow with my typing.I have my ARRL paper work for past years WINS as well as a 2nd place in the World Six Meter World Wide Club Contest & now only do it for others scores NOT mine.Hope you all do well & maybe the bands will be WIDE OPEN for a change. {:>)   Wink

 WW8OH - in central Ohio -  reports the 50 ft tower, and 10 extra feet from the  mast is now in place, being turned by a Yaesu rotator, and supporting;
-  5 els at 52 ft for 6M,
-  2x10 els  at 56 ft for 2M,
- and 14 els for 70 cm at 61 ft.

Power: 100w on 6M ssb and cw - 200w on 2M ssb/50w on 2M FM - and 100w on 70 cm ssb / 35w on  FM.

We are ready to   do it!   The WX looks ideal.  The  four man team is primed.  Lap tops are loaded with N3FJP software.  Now all we need is some.....propagation.

Hope to see you on 6, 2 and 70 cm.

The Gang at COOKEN....Brad, Kevin, Jack, and Bob.
