I am N4HWL in Murfreesboro Tennesee. I have been a han (ham) radio operator for 30 years and almost always put up some type of antenna when I am camping.

rich, N9DKO and Donna, N9DKN in west suburban chicago. we have an VHF/UHF/HF station in the MH (ICOM 706 MKIIg) as well as handhelds, CB, FRS, etc. about the only time i get to work HF is when we're in the RV...too many other things going on here at home.

I am KE4HTS
Wife is KB0VFX

Build my own antennas, don't leave home with out at least 2m.
designing a nice rugged multiband HF mobile antenna for the eventual RV. Also have a 35' fiberglass collapsible mast that fits everything I build nicely.

I monitor 146.52 on the road, and in the house.

Ham for, gosh, over 40 years now. Got my novice ticket when I was about 14...when crystal control and morse code were the only way we could get on with that grade license.

As per sig, VP9KL. Over 30 years. Only active on 2M, 146.52 when on the move. Never really stay anywhere long enough to make setting up HF worthwhile.
