My latest antenna is a DX Engineering vertical dipole fed with 450 ohm ribbon.  It easily tunes up on 30 m and above with my Kenwood TS480SAT's  internal tuner.  It doesn't tune up on 40 m, but I am getting a signal out anyway although SWR > 10:1.

I have set up a WSPR beacon running 5 watts in frequency hop mode on 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 10 and 6 meters.  Below are spots of my WSPR beacon over a recent 24 hour period.  You can access the live data on http://wsprnet.org/drupal/wsprnet/map.  I set this antenna up to cover directly north and south as the Steppir in my attic is oriented along a N-S axis and therefore exhibits nulls to N and S, making it almost impossible to reach Europe which is basically due north from my QTH.

Other interests: The picture below is of me and my son taken near Paradise, Mount Rainier National Park on the RAMROD (Ride Around Mount Rainier in One Day) ride in July 2012. This is a 154 mile ride with 10000 feet delta elevation. Most scenic ride I have ever done, and also the most challenging on a tandem. In 2011, we volunteered and supported this ride with road support and communication. A lot of the route does not have cell phone coverage and the only means of communication is via amateur radio.
