The pipe rack stores long stuff. Wood posts on the bottom and aluminum tubing and rod up above. There are some pieces of masts and other stuff mixed in. The two big black drainage pipes have notches on one end and are used for supporting antenna booms during construction or repair.

The generator is 18kw and is fueled from the 500 gallon propane tank near the garage. It is set up for automatic starting and switching during a power loss. The solar array does not provide backup power, in event of a power loss it just shuts down.
