Thanks Frank.

Now, does anyone know where to find the K2GL (N2AA) video titled:  "To Win The World"?  I believe it was produced in the 1970-80s to document Buzz Reeve's contest station in Tuxedo Park, NY.

All is well and dry here in Lecanto, FL (my hilltop QTH is 120 feet above sea level and slopes down in all directions).  Unfortunately, Tropical Storm Colin was not as kind to others.

See you on 6 Meters!!!

Tom, K3TW
Lecanto, FL

Bill Leonard W2SKE (SK) wrote an article for Sports Illustrated in 1958 about operating multi multi at K2GL. I have a printed copy. I seem to recall it may be on the K8CX web site. If there is an article about giants walking the bands I would like to have it.
