I am currently operating a Kenwood 590s with 2 antennas.

A 7 band Buckmaster OCF dipole at 45ft and a KIO Hexbeam (20-6m) mounted to the roof of the radio room. The Hexbeam is rotated with a Yaesu rotor coupled with a Controller from Green Heron Engineering.

No mountain top here. I'm in the forest so I do what I can.

I am at approximately 2800 ft. above sea level on the Western slope of the Sierra Nevada Foothills. I am involved with our local ARES group and enjoy making contacts on HF.

I've installed a Scorpion mobile antenna in my 2003 Ford F250 truck. It's mounted to the bed of the truck with a Breedlove mount. I mounted the antenna inside the campershell so I had to drill a 5 inch hole in the top for the antenna and mast. For non use or foul weather, I use a 5 inch pipe plug which seals the hole very well. To remove the antenna, the mount folds down and the antenna slips out.

The radio can be used in the truck or I have a portable table to set outside with 15ft of coax. I use an MFJ antenna analyzer to change bands. 

Tranceiver:  Yaesu FT-891 mobile transceiver with a Panasonic toughbook computer with HRD software.

Power: The radio and antenna are powered by a Lithium iron phosphate 240watt/hr rechargeable battery (5 lbs). I use a 60watt solar panel and controller to recharge. Power from the truck batteries can be used as an alternate if necessary.
