<snip>> Advice is warmly welcomed and accepted.  This is not going to be a 
contest station--ever--but a relaxing improvement over my mobile set up 
(where I worked 3B7C on 40, barefoot...).  For contests I'm part of the 
stable at K5GO.

That's how we get to be OTs! <:-))

Two years, a modest tower and antenna? For me it'd be in a heartbeat.

In my case I now have a system that is too big for me to do most of the 
work. I'm trying to fix it piece by piece.

As to the other issue, I certainly would try to get your dad to use the 
station in his room if possible. I did that when I was a teen ager albeit 
the station was a tad more modest than the current one. <:-))
