Jim, I'm way down in Holland, on the west coast, but with summer coming, maybe you'd want to take a road trip. :)
It's a mighty pretty drive , we've visited cousins in Leland on occasion.

Brent, you live in a very nice area. I've been in T.C. for over 30 years and realized last summer I had never been to Holland even with all the traveling I do. So the wife and I spent several days there with our RV last summer and just loved it. The farmers market was great and we were down to the beach to watch the sunset every evening. We hope to come back this year, I'll have to look you up if I haven't figured out this FTA thing yet. I do think I will try closer to home. Skyscanner, I'll send you a PM.

Thanks

Jim

If you get down this way, I'm 2.2 miles from the beach. Here's a pic of a Winter sunset.

Brent, we were at Oak Grove Campground, maybe near you. The winter picture is very nice. Here is almost the same spot last summer. The parachute guys were comming in.

Hi Brent,

My wife and I are in Holland for a few days. Maybe we could arrange a get together. We are at the Oak Grove Campground near Holland State Park.

Brent,

Thank you for inviting me to your home to see your system. I especially like the camouflage paint job on your dishes to hide them in your very nice neighborhood. The orthomode feed on your C band works wonders for only a 6ft dish.

It was good to see you, Jim . A little more excitement in the day than I typically have. Any excuse to go out for breakfast is a good one ! :)
I could only wish that I lived out where I could plant a big patch of dishes, but you've got to live with what you have .
