I have radios every where. I have one in my work truck. I have one in my wife's truck. I have my shack. I have radios in my shop and I have radios in my office at work. I have a bug out box with radios to take to the farm. The only thing I had with no radios in it was my old farm truck. I decided the old (2004) F250 Super Duty FX4 should have a radio in it. The issue is that it being an old diesel and only used maybe one weekend a month when I take the dogs to the farm and during deer season that I really did not want to spend much money on it. I decided not to buy any new stuff and just use what I had on hand. I rarely sell my old radios, I just box them up and put them in storage... never know when you might need a back up. The first thing I thought about was what antenna to use for HF. I had a mag mount dual band antenna to use for the dual bander, so that was a no brainer... but what about HF. I had a couple old screwdrivers on the shelf, so I got one out... and I mean old.. I took it off the wife's truck over 15 years ago... the drive motor in it was actually an old black and decker electric screwdriver motor... I took that out and put a planetary gear drive motor in it... cleaned up the coil and the finger contacts... and then decided that this old truck occasionally goes thru heavy brush and low hanging limbs and something that bulky would not work well....so... I had a piece of 2" by 1/2" aluminum flat stock and made a mount out of that to put a whip on...with a quick disconnect for easy removal when I got into the brush... .
