    Years back when they had the big old school Cell Phones those brackets worked sweet for mounting a radio as they were adjustable . Just my 2 cents . But try & find one now .:LOL:

    Thanks Leo!

    Just for the record the dipole is not inverted at all but flat...end-center-end all same height @ 20’. It does however have a slight lateral angle at center point because of trees and three mounting points. Like a banana on its side or a boomerang flat. :whistle:

    I've been hearing quite a bit this morning: Texas, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio. It isn't great, but it is the best skip day I've heard in a while.

    I’m back in NJ up near Rockaway (IH287 & IH80) as load was screwed up.

    A lot of noise. AM19 quiet as it’s Saturday. Can just barely (occasionally) hear anything on LSB38. This shipper has a lot of automated machinery indoors. I’m backed against them and have HD lookin’ power poles out in front of me. A cage.

    But given reports above I’ll leave it there once I depart via 80E to 287S to IH78W to eventually take IH81S in PA (destination Macon, GA on Monday).

    Git ur ass South of that Mason Dixon. Looks like Slip-n-Slide road conditions. Trow dem cables and chains on and tear up some road.

    Had some skip last night. Iowa. Some this morning. Went out to work on breakover, not really into it....friend of mine passed...kind of null and void. Got me shot, tequila, gotta pop a top on some Lone star.

    Checked radio, nuth'n now. But just got a text that another friend of mine "had a bad night" and will be returning to San Antone on Monday for Doc.

    Pop A Top. Looks like a three day drunk after a two day drunk.
