My QSL card in the upper right hand corner is a photo that I took of my younger son Morgan, KE6KWY, surfing the Wedge here at Newport Beach on one of its bigger days back in August, 2010. Needless to say, dear ol' Dad was a bit nervous as he shot down that wave.
Above is my Toyota 4Runner with the fog rolling into Newport Beach. I have two HF radios in the 4Runner, a Kenwood TS-480HX and an Icom IC-7000. The HF antenna is a Scorpion SA-680S made by Ron Douglas, NI7J, in Phoenix, AZ. A local machine shop in Huntington Beach designed and built the 1/2" x 12" x 12" aluminum plate antenna mount for the 13 lb. Scorpion antenna that is fastened to the roof rack's cross bars.
I recommend Alan Applegate's website www.K0BG.com for anyone desiring to operate mobile HF.
At my home QTH, I have an Elecraft K3 with an Elecraft KPA500 amplifier and operate mostly CW. The antenna is a 205' horizontal delta loop 30' above the ground over my house. I also use an Icom IC-7000 as a backup rig and for VHF and UHF.
