    Hi guys. Been off here for years. I used to run a Texas Bug Catcher 4" coil on a 4' mast mounted on the pickup towing receiver hitch. Had A big cap hat & a whip & total height just barely under legal. I busted dx pile ups with ease, acted as mobile 80 net control often. I was acused of running an amplifier often, but never did. My install used a 2 position unun & had to meticulously fine tune taps for each band with my favorite freqs. I had great mentors like K0BG Allen Applegate et al, & give all credit for the knowledge happily garnered from them. I am finally returning to ham in a big way with the Hi Q Piranha 5/80. I 2016-07-19 12.40.10.png hq-piranha5-400x480.jpg have waited patiently for years & finally got one. I can't overstate my enthusiasm at returning to mobileering and look forward to years of mountaintop DXing as well as 80m rag chewing. 73 & hope to greet you on the air!

    I'm very hopeful. I also bought the EB6 egg beater cap hat so looking foreward to stomping on all but the 6" coils with amplifiers...lol most of you know the feeling of busting a pile-up....
