    Read chapter on bonding. K0BG.COM the best mobile sight on the web
    Bond doors to cab body, body to frame, hood to body then to frame, exhaust to frame it takes time and effort but well worth !! 1 s unit in reduced noise is the same as adding an s unit of audio.... so bonding etc can be a great help working the smaller stations. Good luck 73

    I finally got all the parts and made a crimper to build some straps. This should do the trick, correct?

    I had some free time at work today so I made a crimper. I was actually surprised that in 15 minutes I had a crimper made from a piece of .375 flatbar. A few blows with a hammer and she's crimped. 20151107_133237.jpg
