Are you using an FT-891?
My plate will be a little smaller.
Oh that will never work. Especially with the 7000. I will look after it all, pal.
Just ship it to me.
Seriously, very nice setup.
The 891 requires extra cumbersome nonsense, but is a fine mobile.
I don't recall the brand of aftermarket antenna controller that I used but it was easy to operate.I never used the switch that came with the TARHEEL II just the other controller. It was quick & required just one push of the tuner button on my ICOM 7000 & it was done.
You will get everything except 6 meters with the 56" whip.Been there & done that & it makes a big difference on 40 & 80 meters.
That's what I read. I need to keep trying
Not a bad trade off, that's similar to my Little Tarheel HP when I replaced the stock 3ft with a 5ft.
I lost 6m but gained 60m with nearly all the coil used.
I got the 56" loading up good on 80/40 now. I don't like losing 6 meters. I've been making a few contacts mobile lately. I also use our local repeater. Oh well, I'm satisfied with 80/40, as that's the majority of where I'm going to operate.
6 meters is cool, but it's even cooler mobile. Maybe I can rig up a quick whip change.
Don’t forget the hat that goes with it!
Everything is a rough install. Now I need to get my Rigrunner hooked up and tidy everything up.
Airbags. The reason given for no dash top mounts.
Solution: remove them. The 3-point belt is what matters.
And, then the passenger warning sticker:
Advisory: No airbags
In this SUV we die like men.
"Everything" will clear the bags. Rigrunner is just laying there. It's going down on the hump. The meter isn't going to be installed.
60 meters is a great HF Band for mobile use also.I prefer it over 40 or 75 meters.
