Moonlight and Clouds4 viewsThis is also one of my favorite shots of the trip. Exposure was 20 seconds on the DSC-W1. I suppose the distant headlights may be in San Juan Capistrano. The city lights towards the left is probably San Clemente (my hometown).55555

31 viewsInitially, the antenna was installed on a 5' pole. I've since replaced the 5' with a 10'. Due to building restrictions, I can't go higher.

IMAX 2000 Tuning Rings28 viewsSince the antenna was installed only 5' off the roof, the tuning rings were adjusted to compensate for SWR problems. After tuning (and raising the antenna to 10'), the SWR was a nice 1.2:1 at 28.4MHz.

VHF Vertical2 viewsDarin found this antenna at a muffler shop. The shop owner had no use for it and let him take it. We used the MFJ-259 to determine the antenna was resonant on 2 meter AND 6 meter. From this height though, we were able to hit a few repeaters using a dummy load!

Coax entrance2 viewsFor the VHF/UHF antenna, I fed the coax through an available grommet on the rear door. For water/moisture protection, I used "coax-seal" (www.coaxseal.com) around the entrance point.
