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

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.
