I've seen a couple references to ham call signs here. Now you've got me wondering how many are here.

WA9TVH (A step ahead of TVI) since 1965. Also DA1QD.

As to the HF antenna supports, I'll see if I have some pictures of my system. It uses a couple of 16' long fishing poles (Fiberglass of course) and some WW-II era lightweight phosphor bronze antenna wire. The vertical support is thick wall aluminum tubing formerly serving as side poles for military stretchers.

The dream antenna support would be a 36' pneumatic mast mounted to the back bumper of the EggCamper. Still trying to sell the XYL on that one though.

I lead our ARES Field Station Team.
I think they really just want me for my Air Conditioner!
These Eggs are the ultimate GoBox!

Field Day here always feels like being in a swamp.

My home away from home in the backyard.

I use a Carolina Windom Antenna strung up in the trees, and a storebought Arrow J-pole for 2meters & 440cm.
And everyday is a field day in the Scamp!
