Ham Radio Highlights

  • Excellent Amateur Radio Location. We are 850 ft above Lake Level and NH Lakes are already way above sea level.
  • Very quiet, private, middle class neighborhood, no HOA Regulations.
  • Many tall pine and oak trees, some 130 ft high, that can be used for wire antennas. I’ve been very successful using wire antennas at this location.  I am currently using an End-fed Half Wave, 40M long, 30 Meters high, N/S, and I’ve felt I’m as strong as someone with a 3-element yagi.  In the past, I was also very successful using a full sized 3-element wire beam for 80 Meters.
  • If you want to put up towers, that would be OK, as there are no HOA or zoning restrictions. Here in New Hampshire, we say “Live free or die”.
  • I’ve been successful remote controlling my Ham Radio Station via remote control from Florida… transceiver, amplifier and antennas are all accessible — solid Internet access available.
