Dave Title: Re: 40 meter mobile antenna, recomedations? I use the Hustler RM 20 most of the time as I like 20 meters. Realized I didn't attach the picture. In its first design the Stake Stick was used with a standard single piece Hustler mast and two interchangeable Super Resonators, one for 40 meters and one for 15 meters to give two band operation. THe hamsticks were low profile and easy to breakdown and put away.
Hello, I was looking into putting a mobile HF in my company car, I was at a Radio store and the saleman told me that it would be a 8 or 9 foot antenna. Before I retired from the local power company last year one of my jobs was to support our construction crews radio needs. The coils can be changed for 10, 15, 17, 20, and 40 meters and the coils are small and easy to pack. WARC Bands no radials 7. Your results may vary. I have heard that the Yeasu screw drivers still suffer from water leakage from a few people. This is a 5 band configuration using a 6 inch square Alu.
A compact screwdriver and two selected wrenches are useful to set it up. I have a Hustler on a ladder mount Setup is rather fast and spreading out the radials on the ground is not as bad as you would think after a few times. In its first design the Stake Stick was used with a standard single piece Hustler mast and two interchangeable Super Resonators, one for 40 meters and one for 15 meters to give two band operation. I don't mind changing resonators, have used Hustler in the [ancient] past. These standard whip resonators will handle up to Watts of power.
The mounting and the four coils of radials slip into the backpack side pockets. The ground radial connecting plate is placed on the ground and the stake is shoved through a central hole until the mounting is flush against it, all the way down. The lowest band I have operated while mobile is 40M. Your name or email address: Password: Forgot your password? Putting low-band mobile antennas on modern vehicles is a sketch.
