First licensed in 1988 and my current call since December 1997 .... Now using a YAESU FT-2000 with NS 3 khz Roofing Filter Mod : see http://www.ac0c.com for filter information,and FT-2000 latest version firmware ( 11.54 .158 ), Alpha 99 amplifier, ....Yaesu FT-990 and Ameritron AL-80A as backup gear,WinTest ver. 4.10.0 for contest logging .

Now have a SteppIR DB18E up on Rohn 45G tower at about 70 feet.

Thanks to NX5M  Bob and AB5K Terry for help with getting huge antenna to top of tower and also with new tower install a  month earlier .  DB18E  has  been up since 25 October  2014 ,  and the Alpha 99 really likes the low SWR.  I still need to place back up on tower my 75/80 and 160 inverted vees .  I use a K9AY Loop for receive on low bands .

In my pickup truck I have a Yaesu FT-857D and antenna is the Yaesu ATAS-120A with power at about 100 watts.

 

As of 15 December 2011 , I have re-installed HF mobile gear into 2012 SILVERADO and seems as if all is working just fine and muchless noise to contend with . I do use the NB feature with the radio and see a S 0 background level on receive when on the open road away from the city and powerlines.The vehicle is bonded very well with braided ground straps and I have never seen any RF problems into any of the truck's instrument gauges while transmitting. Thanks to K0BG for all of the excellent information for proper HF mobile installation and noise abatement.

It has been a great help in getting my ignition noise level reduced.
