If you follow the white PVC poles, you'll be staring down a beverage receive antenna aimed to the south-west.

The 15M tower, with a Cushcraft XM515 and a large yagi for 50 MHz at the top. A Cushcraft XM510 yagi for 10M is side-mounted lower down, put up temporarily for a contest weekend.

The top of the 40M tower, with a Cushcraft XM240 on a rotor. The tower will eventually host stacked 40M yagis, as they can be constructed and installed.

This is a closer view of the 82 foot tower near the house. It has a Cushcraft X9 tribander, and monoband yagis for 50 MHz, 144 MHz, 222 MHz, and 432 MHz.
