Name This Mystery Ship V

By popular demand, the "Name This Mystery Ship" contest is back!  Here's the rules: no cheating by using photo-matching programs or things like that.  Otherwise?  Free game.  The winner gets a post on a topic of his or her own choosing (within limits: no pr0n, religion or politics).  If it looks like nobody is going to get it, I may decide to post a hint or two.

Here's the mystery ship:

Good luck to you!

1 To my land-lubber eyes, the rigging looks like some sort of radio gear.  I searched for either a radio-navigation beacon ship, or perhaps an intelligence vessel performing radio direction finding/intercepts.  Unfortunately, I could not find any vessels which both performed those missions and resembled your photo...

4 My first guess was a SIGINT ship, or maybe a RADAR picket.  But I can't come up with a matching profile.  The hunt continues...

6 Oops. USS Anacapa, (I figured it was a Q ship)

7 Darn, now that Brickmuppet gave the name, I found it right away.  For some reason I figured you wouldn't choose a Q-ship again...

8 Q is for Quack!

9 @Siergen: ...again?  I haven't done a Q-ship before.

@Brickmuppet: I'm not going to ask how you knew this one. 

There's a good story behind the Anacapa, which I'll tell tomorrow (oooh, teaser).

10 You haven't?  I could've sworn you had...
