QSL image for AB6WL

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 the home QTH, my main setup is an Elecraft K3/P3/KPA500/KAT500. I have been operating mostly CW for the last two years and have been accumulating some QRP CW rigs--Elecraft KX3, two qrpkits Weber Tribanders & a Ft Tuthill 15, Wilderness Radio NorCal40A, and a Weber MTR (the small blue box on the desk to the right of the KX3). I also have a Hardrock-50 amp for when I am in the mood for more power when using the QRP rigs. The white box above the amp is a Midnight Science CW Regnerative Filter, and the aluminum box above the NorCal40A is a qrpkits Buddy Keyer. The grey box above the Heathkit SB-303 Receiver is an Autek QF-1 Active FIlter. The Ten-Tec 238C is a great backup Antenna Tuner/Matcher, and there is a 4SQRP QRPometer sitting on the KPA500 that is in line with the QRP rigs in order to measure their output power and  SWR for them.

My antenna is a 205' horizontal delta loop 30' above the ground over my house, and I am constantly amazed at how well it works.

Thank you for stopping by my QRZ page and 73,

Earle
