HF Ham Radio Station

The HF station consists of an Icom 7000 hooked up to a LDG AT-100Pro automatic tuner. Depending on the conditions, the rig is connected to either a 550 foot end fed wire antenna suspended at 40 feet, or a HyGain DX-88 vertical antenna. The VHF and UHF side of the radio is connected to a Diamond X-200A antenna that is on a35 foot pole. The station is on top of a hill and over looks the entire valley all the way to Elko, which is approximately 19 air miles to the southwest.
