Hi Kelly,

His name is Terry and I remember him giving a presentation of his tower and 
antennas down in Visalia some years ago.  The great part of this story is he 
made everything, tower and antennas, and he put the whole thing up himself. 
If I remember correctly, 80m through 1296 mhz rotatable antennas, all 
full-size monobanders.  It is one of the best shows I ever saw down there! 
One of the nicest guys you ever want to meet too.  I would love to see it in 
person too.  If you go, please take some digital pix's and send me a few.
