.: WA6WPG- 2 ELEM 80 METER VERTICAL ARRAY AND
    40 METER FOUR SQUARE
    MOJAVE DESERT, CALIFORNIA

 

The two verticals are 50 feet high and base loaded with a HUGE COIL and each has 74 radials.     My SPACIOUS operating position in the back of my HONDA ELEMENT.     I should get an award for spending 18 hours in the back.
The other picture is the 40 meter 4 square that was my FIRST DESERT ANTENNA and the reason I bought the property in 2004. The location is 7 miles EAST of the city of Mojave at 2800 feet on a mesa over looking the town. I am 2 miles from the EDWARDS AFB perimeter fence and 15 miles from MUROC DRY LAKE where the tower and run ways are located at EDWARDS. Mojave is about 70 miles NW of downtown Los Angeles and 132 miles from my home in Corona.    My nearest neighbor is 4 miles away as is the nearest electricity.  I have a 70 pound battery for power and solar panels to charge the battery if I stay more than two days.
