Aloha Fred,

Thanks for your note.  Have you t tried a balloon to raise your after
dark verticals?;  maybe it is too windy there to try,  certainly is
too windy out here!!

Yes,  I  am thrilled with the Omni.  But at the moment I am completely
re-working the set up in my small radio shack room.  So I have most
of my gear out of here, while I set up some shelves to better
arrange the gear.  I am sort of following the shelf set up
by Val,  NrRJ's,  rig plan,  to see his set up,  have a look at:


Once I get the thing built up,  I will begin to bring each item 
back in here,  and very neatly,  I hope,  rewire/cable all together
and eliminate the amazing rat's nest of wires,  coax,  ground
strap,  etc.  from what has been in here these past 7 years!!

73,  Jim,  KH7M
