Wow.  A contest from my own home.  And I can say that now...  I just
bought my first house (Dec 20th).  I threw up a couple dipoles to
see how quiet the location is.  Boy, is it quiet!  Then again, it could
have been my crappy, non-resonant antennas!  They aren't even resonant
in their own bands!  I would have liked to spend more time on 160, but
I had to go to a post-Holidaze party at 02z, so not much activity on
160 before then.  I was still very excited to get 11 of my 15 Qs on
calling CQ, on a 30' high 80M dipole.  Very cool.

Speaking of cool, I just picked up some Rohn 45 last weekend (now
that I got a house, I gotta get rolling on the tower).  So I can't
wait for summer to come around.  Of course, in Wisconsin, that's
in August.  If finances permit, I gotta get that tower up.  But
buying a house kinda puts a damper on my previous spending habits.
And if a house isn't enough to set me back, there is an engagement
in the works.  In fact, the deal I have with my girlfriend is that
I have to propose before the tower goes up.  But, since I bought the
house, I told her it's 100% her responsibility to pay for the
wedding.  So after the ring is out of the way, 100% of my spare
change goes towards putting up that tower!!

Speaking of tower (nice segue), I'm still in need of many bargains.
I need tower hardware (grips, thimbles, turnbuckles), GAC303 anchors,
Rohn screw-in anchors, KT-34XA, 402CD, hardline, 9913F, RG213, 
rotor cable and a few feet of 1/4" EHS.  If you can help out, let me
