N5XU == “ON THE AIR” !!!!

Greetings N5XU, UT Amateur Radio Club

After over a year of planning, and several months of silence; the N5XU station came back to life this afternoon with a CW contact to Hawaii.

Our new shack is on the 10th floor of ETC, and it is a little smaller than our ENS 420 shack. The antennas are a little higher, and so far the rotor and tribander have been verified to be set up properly. All the cables have been run between the shack and the tower and proper connectors attached. We still have a bunch of work to get the shack organized and the stations set up properly, but getting our first contacts was a great sign of things to come.

I will continue to keep y’all informed on status updates, and will be asking for some assistance in setting up some of the equipment.
