W5SDC (pre digital era)

FM, HF and SSB antennas in 2004. Gone now, but never forgotten.

Wrecked by a winter storm blast on Feb 1, 2011. The top North guy wire snapped during a wind gust.

My legacy HF radio table in those days. The Alinco DR-235 220 monobander (lower right corner)
is the only radio still in service today on it's "Ugly Duck" dipole.
