Virginia and I are having an incredible amount of fun with NPOTA as Activator and Chaser!
The portable/mobile rig is a Kenwood TS-440s. The antenna is a Hustler mobile                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   mast with individual band resonators mounted on a repurposed video camera tripod.
The platform of the bridge crossing the Colorado River, in the background of the photo below, is 200 feet above the river.  

 The location of this Activation is over 800 feet directly above the Colorado where it curves south under the cliff below the antenna.

10,000 foot mountains looking at 360 degrees from top of the tower.

Fortunately, my wife doesn't like tall trees around our yard. "Tall trees are unsafe in the east winds we get." So, over the years as she has wanted trees cut down I've made a token protest about doing it. While Inwardly I've been very happy that the tower will have no competition from nearby trees.

Only a small, well groomed, Amur Maple has survived the chain saw.


 

My tech work in the travel industry has taken me to over 58 Countries on 6 continents. Ex: 5W1DN, ZL0AEP, VK4AVH, VK2AVH, VK2FZU. I was also licensed to operate in: England, Germany, Italy, Israel, Venezuela, Jamaica, Hong Kong,  among others...prefixes include: VK1, VK2, VK3, VK4, VK5, VK6, VK8; ZL0, ZL1, ZL2; FO8; 5W1; 3D2; A35; XX9; VR2; BY; XE1, XE2, XE3, XF; VE2, VE3, VE6, VE7; TI2; HI8; KP4; FG; 6Y5; ZF1; 9Y4; YV1, YV3, YV4, YV5; HK3; HC1, HC2, HC6; OA4, OA5, OA6, OA7; CP1, CP5, CP6; ZP3, ZP5, ZP9; PY1, PY2, PY5, PY7, PY8; CX; LU-A, LU-E, LU-I, LU-J, LU-H, LU-M, LU-V, LU-X; CE1, CE3, CE4, CE5, CE6, CE7; HP; TG; HR; YN; SU; 9G; ZS1, ZS3, ZS3, ZS4, ZS5, ZS6; D4;YK;OD;4X;HV;IZ;HB9; OE;DL;LX;ON;PA; F; G, GW, GM, EI.  

I've also operated mobile from many U.S. counties in 46 of the 50 states including all 29 in Utah; 10/15 AZ; most of the 44 Idaho counties and 12/23 Wyoming counties.  Not too spectacular except that all of the AZ, ID, UT and WY counties were 'run' by schedule to provide Worked All Counties and final county contacts for UA0FGM and some other European and Oceania DX stations who needed these sparsely populated difficult to work Western U.S counties. I also provided "last county" contacts in OH, PA and NY. Although I've visited four of the five counties in KH6 I've only operated from one.

I finally visited my penultimate travel 'bucket-list' location: Cape Leuwin, West Australia. It is the last of the Three Southern Capes for me. Scroll down for location-proof pics. 

Scroll to the bottom. I finally have a replacement photo for my Cape of Good Hope pix (that's a sad story) to complete the set of pictures of the Three Capes.

The following are pictures I took at two of the "Three Capes" as seen in this polar projection.

The Three Capes are best known among circumnavigating sailors.

El Faro del Fin del Mundo in Beagle Channel near Cape Horn.

My picture - and negative -of the Cape of Good Hope was accidently discarded in a "dejunking" frenzy.

I'll get another one to replace it somehow, somewhere....

do you have one to share? If so please email me about it.

Nov 2011: Whaddaya know! I now have an even better picture than my original, courtesy of ZS1AFS.

Tom has a very interesting story, look at his QRZ.com listing.
