The shack is QRT.
With the move coming up at the end of December, the next few weeks are pretty busy and there probably isn’t going to be much time for any significant radio for a while.
Brought the antenna down this afternoon. After being in the trees for almost three years, it still looks in pretty good condition.
Didn’t see any significant wearing on the wire insulation anywhere. A good spraying off and it would probably look just like new aside from the label on the center insulator fading a bit.
It’s not likely I’ll be able to set up an antenna or shack while we’re in the apartment, so playing serious radio will have to wait until we get things set up again at the new house. Might put the radio in the car and try to do some mobile work, or find a nice tree to throw some wire into and play radio out in the field between now and then.
