Reviews Summary for Building a Super Station by K1TTT
Building a Super Station  by K1TTT Reviews: 3 Average rating: 4.7/5 MSRP: $51.53
Description: History of the construction of a Ham Radio super contest station. 21+ years of construction, reconstruction, and maintenance at K1TTT with tips for both big and small contest stations.
Indeed his construction starts totally from scratch.
You are quickly fascinated by his day-by-day experiences while building his station. From his first small tower +tribander to the XXL sized stuctures. Many bears on the road to be conquered provide you first hand experiences in real life as-is situations.
His book is full of many large colorfull pictures, which visually show you the process of developping from average Joe-ham to a major M/M contest station. The large crowd of builder volonteers and many operators are proof that the fun-factor is his #1 priority.
K1TTT is very much willing to share data and experiences, take also look at his website:
www.k1ttt.net/technote/techref.html
This provides zillions of technical/mechanical reference data.
All in all this a great book !
Product is in production.

Great inspiration!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Oh! To have access to such resources, time, and money! I can only imagine. Still, my station is work in process. Building and modifying it is as much fun as actually being on the air. K1TTT is one of the "Big Guns" that I admire and hear every contest. The book provided some great ideas for me. And the price is absolutely reasonable!

A Dreamer's Book  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The antennas and pictures are outstanding/impressive. However, little things are taken for granted like understanding how to get those monster 50 foot booms up in the air and attached...

This book is only for dreaming for me, I will never have that much time/money to put up a monster, but it is inspiring to see someone who can/does. Makes me happy that I can hear anything at all with my dinky setup.

For $5 download, a true barging (as others have said)

Great Read!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
What a fantastic read. Very Inspirational. $5 for the downloaded PDF version, an absolute bargain.

An easy read. Some very good information contained within. Something for everyone from new ham to seasoned DXer or contester.

Highly recommended.
