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.

Galaxy Saturn Turbo5 viewsThe Galaxy Saturn Turbo, MFJ-969, IMAX 2000 vertical antenna and a D104 Night Eagle make up the 10/11 Meter base. This radio has the ComSpec SS-64 tone board installed in order to access the N6LIZ repeater on 29.660 mHz.

American Flag5 viewsIn hindsight, we should've placed the flag on the pole BEFORE we erected it. Since we didn't, it was only at arms length.

4-Second exposure shot of FT-101 Line4 viewsAside from the light from my computer LCD, the room was completely dark. Exposure was set for 4 seconds on the digital camera. The LCD provided enough light to cast shadows behind the radio setup.

3" ABS Piping along roofline2 viewsI selected 3" piping to provide adaptability for future antenna projects. Traps can be added that will fit inside the wide piping.
