Tarheel 200A-HP

Tarheel 200A-HP


Here's my secret weapon for maximum efficiency.

When parked, use a MFJ- 1979 17ft. telescoping whip in place of the cap hat.

on 80 meters, you will about the same amount of coil turns as you would on 40 meters greatly increasing ERP on that band and 40 meters will use about the same coil turns as 20 meters.

Look me up on QRZ and scroll down to my mobile pics to see my antenna with the long whip.

When parked yes. I use the cap hat because it allows me to run mobile without hitting to many overhead obstructions. I also replaced the supplied shunt coil with one I made myself which greatly improved the tune up on 80M. I made a new coil out of regular house wire, 10 turns which were formed on a deep socket wrench socket. I attached it with power pole connectors and gave it a better off set from the mount so it would not be too close to the mount or other sheet metal.
