It's still in storage, along with a couple 101"s , a Lafayette base station, a couple Silvertone tube radios and who knows what else.
That's my " when I need something to do stuff"
Won't see that anytime soon.
Yes, Forest Runner you are using a core as a choke.
What they are talking about here is winding two individual wires in different numbers of turns around the core and making a transformer.
Some antennas do not present a 50 ohm load, but that's what your radio wants to see.
They transform a high...
Yes, when your stretching it out that much it gets too touchy, then you have to add a 10 turn potentiometer or a multi turn reduction drive to try to slow down the clarifier like back in the day.
I like steel.
How soft is it?
They do make LED brackets to mount lights on the hood, you might be able to adapt for your install.
Here is a picture I dug up on the net that looks like it would work if you find the correct bolt pattern.
Yes, that was the op he wants no drill, no mag mounts.
There are fender mounts used on pickups and vans, there are lip mounts like Diamond makes that have 3/8-24 threads.
And there are through the glass antennas.
My experience with the 2 meter models of on the glass antennas has not been...
You have about covered it.
A lip mount like a diamond K400 3/8 mount will hold a fiberglass whip, I used to run a hustler CG144 on one, it should hold a 3 foot fiberglass whip like a hotrod.
Got a luggage rack?
I am not sure what happened to Tony, I have e mailed him in the past and it gets bounced back as invalid e mail.
Good luck finding a simple mod for this radio, a lot of them got closed out from the shack for $80 bucks when the quit making them.
If you find a way, let us know, people have been...
That coil is a choke made from coax, and it extends up into the antenna.
The actual feed point is about half way up the antenna and uses a shorted impedance matching stub inside the fiberglass, and a capacitor to couple the top section.
That's why they call it a center feed antenna.
No worries, I just find it interesting that they were using large core output transformers before the "comp" builders started doing it.
They are also the only ones I have ever seen build 2 1×4 amps and combine them into one case.
