No, I don't have any big antennas up. I live in a townhouse now, and have virtually abandoned HF. I keep HTs in my briefcase and car for 2 meters, 70 cm and 1 1/4 meters, and I have a tri-band rig in my office with inside antennas for the same bands, but that's about it.

I did find a QRP CW rig for 17 meters in my garage that was given to me years ago and that I never took out of the plastic. I plan to put up a little portable dipole and try that out again. My CW is getting dismal...I'm sure I'm down to 15-18 WPM now. Since the band seems to be opening a little, maybe I can get it back up to 25 WPM with some dedicated weekend practice.

I'm monitoring 224.26 and 147.00 in the office, and, if I have a break when I hear someone, I usually say hi.
