so is that a 9 inch 10k on there now in pic??View attachment 28688
Its on a puck mount on the roof of a 2010 Jeep Liberty Renegade. 5ft is the max length I can have to get in my driveway without taking it down because of the electric line to the house. Also, when I want to shoot skip I have a 108 ss whip or a 102 inch whip with a 12in adjuster/ riser on the roof I use when not moving because thats 15ft to the top LOL. I am really only using this for the winter because during the spring and summer I don't mind taking the antenna down because it's not freezing and my normal antenna besides the whip for skip shooting is a Predator 10-K with a 27 inch shaft and that's up at about 13ft what is max for driving around here safely.
I was just wondering if anyone thought that was better than the SkipShooter which I chose the SkipShooter because in my searching I found it the longest antenna that has the thickest winding wire than all the other antennas that I have found what thickness wire they have, which to me is better for these types of antennas. I use LMR400UF Coax.
P.S. The roof racks are not there now.
Yeah they all bs a bit but those antennas have the thickest winding wire than all the others with their 4ft and longer. Never had an issue with the new ones and also had one of the originals from back in the 90s.Just read the advert. Christ is there some real marketing bullshit in it.
If I remember right its 88 inches. The 17 inch is around 78 in. The 9 is around 76 in. I am using LMR400UF Coax, 2 lengths 15ftish each as I can't remember exactly as I used the velocity factor calculator for Channel 20.
