Bill Axelrod, K3WA, moved to Woodford County, Illinois to enjoy his retirement, the fine weather we enjoy here, and, of course, the wonderful propagation we experience here in the Black Hole.
Brenda, surprised me shortly after our arrival by hiring a contractor to build me a 19' by 19' dedicated ham shack in the basement.
My family is very supportive of my hobby including my passion for disappearing for weekends at a time for contests.
Brenda and I decided that it was time to downsize - smaller house, less land, much less maintenance and of course - fewer antennas. We have bought a home in Pittsboro, NC and are in the process of leaving Illinois and heading East. I am and still will be active on the bands and in contests. We will be leaving Illinois on 28 December 2018.

So, what's a ham to do after spending 10 years building a competitive contest station? Why, you tear it all down and relocate.
