RE: What unusual location have you parked overnight at?

Should've not be unusual; but boondocked overnight in Sheep Canyon, Anza Borrego State Park in California. (In 2013) This is a VERY remote place, but offers very good star grazing and even a chance to get away from cell phone. Stayed there many times before. Everything was fine until about 1:30 AM in the morning, when vehicles with (I guess) 20+ (several armed) INS personnel showed up, plus a helicopter! (A helicopter landing next door will wake you up!) Turned out I was in middle of an INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service) staging area, complete with construction of holding pens, and "Intake Processing" queues. Due to the noise I couldn't sleep much more after this. Everything and everyone was gone though, by daylight the next morning. I am not criticizing INS, nor Anza Borrego S.P. But this was an unusual camping experience for me, hope it stays that way!

RE: Fixing AC polarity issues.

This is a great project. Note that the switch specified Hubbel HBL1386I is "Center off," this provides the "break before make" closure (otherwise you might see sparks fly!) I learned once the hard way that Norcold refrigerators won't work properly on AC if the hot/neutral leads are reversed - another reason to support this project if you encounter this condition with AC......

RE: HAM Radio Antenna Advice?

Thanks, forum! Not even an hour has gone by and very good information has already come in! I am on an information quest and this forum provides a "jump start" for discovery... THANK YOU!

HAM Radio Antenna Advice?

This thread likely to be moved; but posting here first because Truck Campers are usually first (and often the best) to offer knowledgeable advice. I use 2m/70cm, but plan to buy and add RV (mobile) FM/UHF/HF rig. I want to work 40m and 80m, and especially NVIS. (Near Vertical Incidence Skywave) So looking for a campsite field-deployable dipole (camper ladder mounted?) but also wire feeds to grade to support NVIS operation. Open to vertical polarization as well but NVIS is the real goal. Looking for antenna recommendations, thoughts? I usually camp in desert with no trees around. Looking for lightweight, easy deployable options. Thoughts? Also shopping for new mobile HF radio, another thread. Thank you!

RE: How do you travel with a cat??

A few cats are born (or otherwise raised) to travel; great but in my experience most (Esp. Siamese) cats (used to a house) are "homebodys," hate travel and will voice differing opinions as to your own travel plans. One cat did calm down only to bring me several live mice "presents" while tent camping in Sequoia; probably as a peace offering.... A good thing about cats is that you can leave them home with a stockpile of food and water and they'll be just fine when you return. Not so with dogs. If you travel with a cat, try to get cat used to harness (not collar) and beware predators! (Birds of Prey, Coyotes, etc.)
