After 30 years away Russ is back on his Ham Radio working Real DX from his cabin in the woods


Russ says: "I live in the woods as you can see and had been inactive for over 30 years. Got bored during the pandemic so thought, at 85 years old, to see if I could find an antenna that might work. Stumbled onto the Greyline Performance Antennas and decided to give it a go. Long story short, got everything together and then fired up my old rig. First contact from here, 30 miles west of Chicago, was Mississippi, then in order: Texas, Alberta, and then Latvia! I am well pleased."

Grab an antenna package like his, right here. An excellent HOA ham radio antenna option that works Real DX out of the box. Maybe your XYL will prefer the install in her front yard or garden too! Ham Radio is fun again!


  • "Real DX 160-6M at my HOA"
  • "4 Band DXCC in 3-months at my HOA."
  • "So pretty my XYL approves!"
  • "If I can hear it, I can work it."


Let's get you and your friends back on the air. Ham Radio is fun again!
