    I have 30.1 surround sound just so I can feel "immersed" when my local repeater kerchunks...http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2630240/1985-plymouth-colt

    just kidding :D:p

    This is AF4KK's "Radio-Active" rolling RF art piece. Even has flashy LEDs and hydraulics!

    My mobile setup is still in it's design phase. Will be fun to get it built once all the parts are in place!

    Everyone seems to be proud of their mobile masterpiece, no matter what it is. Sometimes, however, they are so badly done, it makes you wonder how they can keep from catching fire.

    The another issue which always surprises me is, the most staunch defenders are the operators with the worst of installations. Just go to my web site's Photo Gallery, and bring up the HOS album.

    Mine Mobile is also on my QRZ page. I just replaced my TS-50 with a FT-857D and run a LDG Z100Plus with a Hatch mounted Comet mount and Hustler antennas. Still working on learning the radio. Other then some noise issues that i am still working I enjoy operating mobile HF. Worked PJ4C 5/9 both ways on 15m this morning. Alan's KØBG site has been a help with some issues i have had. My antennas are a compromise and don't preform the best but they do work.

    My latest issue is a noisy heater fan but only at medium and slow speeds, at high it's quiet. Guess i will have to replace it with a new one.......

    Here is one of mine.. Had several.. This one was mounted on a Panamax ship (about 850 ft) Had a bunch of collins stuff as well as
    Mackay.. Was a nice rig.. The collins xciever was close to the legal limit, solid state finals. It didnt switch fast enough for SITOR
    so we had a little hundred wat Mackay rig for that. The antenna was a 35 foot whip with a collins auto coupler at its base. The coupler
    was huge. It had motor driven vacuum variable caps and a rather large motor driven coill. It was sealed and charged with nitrogen
    to keep moisture out.

    Actually that one doesnt comply with the regulations. We were required to have a mechanical mill. The mechanical mill was stored in a cabinet under the console.
    That would be a log sheet stuck in the odd machine.. another strange thing.. a log sheet.
