Mobile Antennas

Tony N5FNH is a frequent participant in our weekday morning QSOs on 7230 kHz. Today he remarked about photos of his mobile antenna installation. You can find his photos and commentary here. This is one of the topics available from Tony's home page.

On a related note, the November 2007 issue of QST has an article on page 30 titled A Comparison of HF Mobile Antenna Designs. The author K1OF reports on field strength measurements between two different vehicle types using three different antenna designs.

Here is a portion of an e-mail that was sent out in a local clubs mailing list...

Since the QST article didn't say what brands/models were used in the mobile antenna performance test, I asked. See the response from the author below.

In case you haven't read the article yet, the Husler and Hamstick antennas blew away the High Serria Sidekick screwdriver on all bands.
