Pre 2015 QTH Shack

The 2004 Ford Explore insolation of my Mobile radio.

My Mobile antanna is 13' (102" whip & spring with a 1.5"Die. aluminum 5' pipe). and is 14' high from ground. yes it hits some coax cable and the odd bridge. the fun part is I have a magnet that i put on the end of the whip and place it on a wallmart flagpole or a parking lot lamp post. good for 40/80m. best is to toss a wire over the Hamilton escartment (350'high) and clip it to the whip. can tune from 6m all the way to 160m 

Connection to 102" whip

Pss: QTH antannas. Cushcraft A-3, 6m-5e. 6m-v-fm. Not seen is 160 1/8 sloper, 40/80 inverted V and 9 band butternut  

Antanna bass

Mounting bracket with 3/8"x 3" steel plate with 1 bolt to truck frame

Icom AH-4 located in a capartment just inside back hatch beside antanna. will tune 6m to 80m with antanna only. 160 with add wire to the whip.

Radio installed behind back seat in capartment. Had to install 2 fans 1 on the radio as you can see and 1-3" under seat to vent capartment. took power from radio Accessory jack. they come on with radio

ICOM 7000 head on 3/16 aluminum plate. 

Love to ride to see country side with YL and like the trip too NB,NS and PEI 2016. Next trip to west CA,AZ,TX along Route 66 may be.
