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.

Antenna Wire4 viewsI used 14 awg stranded copper wire for the antenna. I've since removed the wire nuts and soldered the connections. The length is 56' total. My attic is only ~60' across, so I used as much space as possible in the attic for the antenna.
