i found it here but its over 100 us dollors.
6 1/2 BASE LOADED MOBILE ANT. BY SIRIO PG 109-H&Y Electronics
the antenna, mount an shipping was 124 bux to my house when I got mine
just my .02
i gotta dodge mini van also. i had a wilson 5k mag mount on it swr werent great until
i put it towards the rear you ever have same issue?i switched to a monkeymade mm9
and still had same issues swrs would raise towards the center.glad the sirio is working for ya!!!
i seen 2 different versions of this antenna.
Still using my Z-180. I have it on a Wilson mag mount too. Yeah; the whip is about 6 1/2 ft tall . . .
And believe me the ground plane mount does make a difference in DX....
this will not end good
I tried running a Monkeymade also on a 4 mag set up an the swr's were freakin unreal! NO matter what I tried I could NOT get them down to normal. Hell, I couldnt get a 102" whip to low SWR with the 4 mag set up! Put the Sirio up an have a 1.1-1.3 through all 40 an a 1.4-1.6 on 10m Mine is actually a little more to the back than dead center...LOL
Needs to be shorter.
Just remember that 24.9mhz is ~12m (~39 ft); so the wavelength is longer. ~28mhz is 10m (~33ft) and that wavelength is shorter than 11m. 11m is in between.
Soooo . . . as you go 'up' in frequency/mhz; the resonant length of an antenna becomes incrementally 'shorter'.
