A quick word about antennas,                                               

I use (mostly) Hy-Gain antennas,  I guess I am old fashioned , I had a TH3mk3 in Holland (picture below)  - sold it when I moved back to the states.
Got another one in Omaha - sold that one too, and another one here in Pocatello, which i sold when I got a deal on a 204BA, and a
103BA  20 meter and 10 meter mono-banders.. I still have the 204BA,  I use along with a TH-7DXX. & 64DX for six meters.

I have had three occasions when Hy-Gain went "WAY" out of their way to keep
me happy,, in fact,  it was done with a smile and completely FREE. A great bunch
of people.. now that MFJ purchased them, I can't say for sure  the same service
would be free, however, their antennas are built to last a thousand years.. and are
not too expensive.. with good ratings. 

I am guessing I will be using a Hy-Gain until I die. I might get a steppIR but my Hy-Gains just won't fall apart...
SO I guess I'm stuck !!! HI HI    

http://www.hy-gain.com/   I recommend these antennas.

Rotors:

I would also like to say that I use Cornell-Dubilier, CDE,  then purchased by Hy-gain, then MFJ .
I think these rotors are to expensive, But name one that isn't toooo expensive ??
They work and work and work,  hardly ever need maintenance. and you can get parts at a fair price   
I've used HAM-M's ,  ham-2 , ham-3, ham-4's , they are all interchangeable, built to last,  unlike some of the other JA  rotors
buy a Ham-4 , live long and prosper ,, 

by the way, I don't work for MFJ, or Hy-Gain,  I just like their antennas

Heres my 204BA     and a TH7DXX  and  64DX for 6 meters,  The 204 was replaced with a 13 element 2 meter and 11 element 432 beam

I might explain about EMMA MINE, that entire coal mine complex, along with most of the old mine properties have been 'bulldozed" FLAT,
and houses and business have been built on the property, The only thing left is a small monument on the street that tells about the mine. .

This is a TH3 MK3  and on top was an FM broadcast antenna,
