    This is just for work or hobby related pictures and such. I found myself cluttering up Brian's new member thread with work pictures, one actually related to where he lives, then rapidly moving 1/4 of the way around the earth before I came to my senses. Since only nerds are viewing and posting to this thread, enjoy! Here's the opener. Me sitting atop a log periodic dipole array antenna on Oahu, and a ground shot of the earth station there showing the LPDA antenna on the extreme right:

    If I'd remembered to bring my rock climbing shoes, I could have done some decent bouldering at Waimea Bay on the north shore of Oahu. Spotted this place at high tide on a previous visit years before and couldn't get to these rocks (lava actually):

    Nice! Just moved to a new place and haven't put up any wire yet. Then again, I lost my 756 to a lightning strike @ our old location so I don't even have a radio right now.
