    Just thinking of my Ham buddy that decided to get back into 11m ( His friends are here :whistle: ) he put a Fat Boy antenna ( or clone ) mounted to the side of his truck on a Ball Mount . Not sure if that cage around is a small fire pit or part of baby gate ! :LOL: It's ugly but that " Ugly " thing sure does work .

    Well I took the advice of others here and ordered my new antenna from DNJ. Decided on the Sirio performer 5000 with the 145 magnet mount. I'm impatient and paid the extra for shipping and will have it monday. I'll let you know my thoughts later.

    Just got back from a roadtrip from Seattle to Coeur d'Alene and found some sidebanders who were very impressed with a 6666 + Sirio 5000 magmount. Great/quiet receive and was working 35 miles away while driving 60MPH!

    You're going to be pleased with that Sirio.

    Is it worth it to change the coax to RG8X? I will never run more than 300 watts through this.
