Where's Maestro? Where has your Maestro gone?

Okay, just like a Flat Stanley, where have you taken your Maestro to go do radios?

Snapshot is quick shot off the ferry boat to Washington Island, Wisconsin (US Island WI-001L) where this weekend it will be a quick overnight running a Flex-6300 with a SteppIR CrankIR antenna.

Weather is a bit edgy though I hope the wind drops and drizzle stops long enough to get the antenna setup yet today.

With it sleeting out who knows?

So where has your Maestro gone?

A quick set of photos. (The small boar is one my youngest Vic KC9NWB shot.)





The strong signal is George W9EVT who live about 3/4 a mile away.

Steve, your making me nervous. The Maestro is too close to the edge of your table. Nice pics.

Thank you. The Maestro with tilt feet gives such a solid feel that you spotted how I crept it up near the table edge.

Didn't seem as worrying in the flesh as in photos, and certainly is an interesting phenomena as I try to be careful.

Running a vertical wire antenna in this weekend's bands wasn't a highly productive exercise. Would have twenty-thirty signals on a band, then only a few weak traces and all over between extremes.

Snowed and deleted, so never got the Maestro outside either.

Until next trip.

I received my Maestro last week, but due to my participation in a ham special event (SCDXA on Nancy Mountain) I couldn't set up Maestro until today.

Here is a shot of the current set up in my shack.  More real estate on the monitors now for logging, contest or digital software.



I printed out the manual today.  Gotta lot of reading to do.

My wife's hobby is quilting.  She made covers for my monitors -- and for the Maestro!

Big Boy!!! 1986 grads from my high school kidnapped BB from a local Shoney's, put him on the roof of the school; he was dressed in a toga and holding a Budweiser.

Took a late ferry out to the island. Rare glassy water. Dark already so radio goes up in the morning.
