In the fall of 2019 we built a new station in Jonesport, ME on 22.5/ac blueberry fields. This will be a remote contest station and available for daily use to RHR members. Below is two Youtube video’s of this awesome ocean front location “MUST WATCH”. We think this QTH is going to play pretty well. Learn more by viewing our start to current status album.

Typically a station of this magnitude would take years to build but we had a very strong team building it. We went from nothing to 5 towers and 28 antennas in less than 6/wks working 12-14/hrs a day. The plan is to keep expanding with additional towers + RX antennas in 2020. We have strategically placed our buildings under or near the towers which makes expanding easy in the future. The RHR team (WW1X, WW2DX) was instrumential in getting all the switches, networking, software up and running very quickily. My son Bobby KC2UPN and I spent the majority of the time getting everything ready and prepared for the team for crane day! It was a lot of fun making this happen so quickly!

Update: Ray just purchased an additional 31/ac at his Summit, NY QTH. . http://www.w2re.com/summit/ – Another MEGA-station in the works!
