Station work

A couple of shots with the ole Wrist Rocket and some creativity with the DK9SQ mast got a new line into the tree.  I’ll be back on 80 again soon!  I’m still trying to figure out what to do with the 6×2 switching system.  I found two relays in my junk box.  But, I need four more, plus a clue about how to wire it all up.  I want to rebuild it as a system like Top Ten Devices suggests.

I also picked up a dead, but cosmetically pleasing, 19-inch Dell flat panel from the scrap pile at work on Friday.  This afternoon, I tore it apart and put it back together.  It works now.  For my good conscience, I’ll be taking it back to work on Monday.  Rats.  I was hoping I’d at least have to solder something…
