My Second Year – N6PET

winnetka-shack
This marks my second year anniversary with my ham radio hobby. A lot has changed, which includes my move from my 25-year hometown in Burbank to Winnetka, CA. It was a fun and challenging move but more importantly, I don’t live in an apartment anymore where now I’m able to put up antennas! My 2-year apartment living was not as bad as I first its going to be. I was able to run antennas most of my friends cant even have in their homes like a 88′ Endfed antenna. I now live in a 2-story 3,229 sqft. house with 5,790 sqft lot. Its a decent size property with plenty of room to play with different antennas.

2 years after, thousands of dollars later, I now have a shack I can be proud of, at least close to what I’ve hoped to have. I won’t discuss much details on this blog and will just let the videos and pictures demonstrate what I have now.
