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.

Yaesu FT-857d2 viewsThis is the newest addition to my radio collection. My FT-101E line, all 6' of it, was simply too big to go mobile with. After hours and hours of research, I chose the 857 over the Icom IC-706mkII based on very modest differences.

Astatic D104 TUG-8 10-DA Microphone0 viewsAstatic's smooth-talking side band head. It has a much tighter frequency response than the D104 element, which cuts out much of the higher range.
