The complete station, minus the two mules that carried it up the hill.

Closeup of the 432 yagi, Mt. Hood in the background.  Doesn't get much better than this really.

Hy-Gain, eat your heart out.  2m 4 elements on top, 222 6 elements in the foreground.  432 was below these two.

Closeup of the feedpoint of the 222 yagi.  Forget all those stupid lugs and washers, the BNC was soldered onto the driven element directly!
