Eastport, ME

Just the start of this 63ac estate on the Ocean! The closest station to EU from the USA!

The smell of salt-water, less than 1000′ to the Atlantic and the Bay of Fundy in Eastport, ME from this 100/ft tower on the sea! Across the bay is VE9 (Campobello, N.B.)


My Family visits Eastport, ME to enjoy the new QTH. Pic taken on the pier leading to the Bay. Missing is my oldest son Ray Jr.

Private Pilot License

Its time to get my Private Pilot License. In the photo is my first lesson on a 2006 Cessna 172 SkyHawk. Why a plane? With Eleven sites we own and maintain in the NE for RHR, I need to travel faster.

From 1984-2013 I worked for Pepsi-Cola. One day I decided after 28+ years that this is the day I retire from the company.  My truck on the last day! :)

Summit, NY



This location sits a top a mountain in the northern Catskill mountains of NY. Its 2100ft ASL and has drop off in all directions. We have won many contests from this location since its inception (build) 2010. We have people around the globe operate this remote station daily. Cheers, Ray W2RE
