    For those with an interest in skating, we set up a 35′ X 60′ ice skating rink in the back yard each winter.   It’s a great way to enjoy viewing the outside of the house!

    If you have an interest in Amateur (Ham) Radio, we are in the process of erecting a 70 foot antenna tower and have 50 feet up now.    We plan to install several antennas for both VHF and HF operation.  The station is located in a separate room off the utility room and consists of a Kenwood TS-940s and TL-922A amplifier.   At this time, the operational antennas include an 80 meter inverted-V dipole with the apex at 50 feet, a 5 element 10 meter beam, at 70 feet and a VHF beam at 80 feet.   We will welcome guest operators.
