Default Finally have a working antenna up

I met the father of a local resident here in Monroe, LA that is also a full time RVer and ham. He came over with his tennis ball launcher to get some lines up in the tree tops here (Monroe, LA). I now have my Carolina Windom 80 up and it is working well.

73 all,
Ken

Ken:

Didn't know you were in Monroe. Nice to have another Louisianan here. I have been checking with a young man out of Bosier who is trying to get a teen net up and running. He likes 20m but it is just too close for us to make contact. He does echolink on Monday nights using a "Seattle" repeater. His name is Cameron and his call is KF5HQB.
