On july 31st 2012 and 02nd of august, i've tested this Buddistick antenna
on 20m band, directly mounted on the trimagnet support at the rear part
of the car. Keep in mind that all the settings here-below and adjustments
have been made by considering the various connections between devices
(transceiver, low pass filter, Tuner/swr-meter and of course the dualposition
**Caution: this antenna not to be used when the car is moving.
Only for mobile stationary use.
For more comfort, a small table, on which i have my 10 inches computer
and Bencher morse key, becomes necessary,no that is not a luxe hi!
August 15th, 2012. Well !Now the detachable Front Panel is fixed
on a mobile phone holder, placed on a thin glass (14x18cm).
On 31st of August 2012, i've got my New Battery 12V/140Ah/800A, LxlxH = 50cm/19cm/20cm, weight is about 35kg. This will give me more Power for mobile operation.
My homebrew vertical antenna G5IJ is attached in the front
of the car, i use it mainly for 30m and 40m bands.
It's not very nice but it looks very efficient!
