One always starts somewhere albeit at the trail head always leading to the summit of one's personal mountain. I've built a few stations around the location never considering location before building the station, until now.
This time, with patience and planning, we're endeavoring to find enough property to support a pair of towers with clear take off angles to the east. The task isn't impossible because locations do exist within a reasonable area of the Five Cities. I've listened to location, location as one significantly important factor when considering competitive RadioSport.
Likewise, another important factor to consider is antenna system, it's as if antenna system and location are paired together in order to maximize one's signal. I've listened to the downside of owning a KLM KT34 with it's VSWR problems when deployed however; I'm going with KLM's reputation as one of the best radio frequency sails in the Five Cities.
Additionally, I was introduced to RadioSport back in Western Pennsylvania using deployed KLM antennas as a novice. The memory is indelibly etched and it's potency continues growing as I endeavor toward my personal summit.
I'm leaving later this morning after finishing my cup of DX Coffee for SL's location. We're engaged in another larger project one that is teaching me about towers and antenna systems. I'd like to thank John for his inspiration, guidance, and tutelage.
