Since moving to our new home, I've not had much chance to work on my ham radio installations. I've got a few antennas up on the 150' tower but still pretty limited (other building priorities right now). I installed a few radios in my 'commute to work' car (2008 Honda Civic Coupe). The car is now equipped with a Kenwood TM-D710A APRS radio, Garmin GPS II plus, AvMap G5 navigation system, and an Icom IC-7000 all-mode HF/VHF/UHF rig. The HF rig also has a TV receiver and the video is sent to the AvMap G5's larger 5" display. The G5 will also double as a larger display for the IC-7000 (big numbers are nice, especially while driving). Antennas include a glass mounted Larson VHF/UHF and a High Sierra HF/6M antenna.

For now, this will have to do as my main ham shack until I can build out the basement and put more towers and antennas up. Below are a few pics of the setup.
