Update II,   Got my HF rig a couple weeks ago, and finally put up a directional antenna in the back yard.  I aimed it at New York, but instead talked to New Zealand!!!  *Note to self: paint arrow on antenna.*
It was cooler than I thought it would be.... in a geeky kind of way. :P

Well done Terry!  That FT60 is a great little radio with the ext. ant.  It'll serve you well for a long time.

Hey AZX,
let me know when you go HF.  I'm putting up a new tri-band(10,15,20) in the back yard this weekend, would like to try it out :)

Will do, currently I have setup a 35 ft beam to string a wire across the backyard. Handles all bands cept for 160m I think. Hooked into a Yaesu-FT 897dHopefully I will get general in the next month or two.
