Default Greetings from the edge of the Jersey Pine Barrens

Hello everyone. Art here in Port Republic, nestled against the beautiful Mullica River, just west of the Garden State Parkway in Southern New Jersey.
When I retired in April of 06, I bought an Airstream (2006 Safari 25' FB SE LS) and a new F150 to tow it with. I've equipped the truck with a FT-857 & the ATAS 120. I plan on setting up my backup rig (TS-430s) in the trailer and doing some light hamming when I camp.
I'm always interested in any antenna projects, especially those applicable to easy assembly and break-down for use with the Kenwood. When the HF bands are poor I often listen to 146.520 simplex in the truck. I hope to hear you on the air.

Welcome aboard, Art! Sounds like you've found a lovely place to park that new Airstream. Jump right in the frey and feel free to contribute!
