40 Meter mobile Ant. Survey


Recommended Posts

I have a Hustler 6-BTV on a tilt-over mount with a strap connected to a boat winch on the rear bumper. While in motion the antenna lays along the top edge of the rig. When we stop I raise the antenna vertical simply by cranking the winch. I prefer this to any mobile antenna and is much easier to setup than the full sized dipole I used previously. While your Hamstick dipole will certainly work, my concerns include how efficient is it and the very narrow 2:1 bandwidth.

I use a pair of hamstiks on both 40 and 80 meters. I tune them in the middle of where I usually operate and use an automatic tuner to let me move around a little. They are somewhat directional but that helps in some cases. I plan to add 20 and 10 meters when I can find them at a Hamfest.

I installed a Flagpole Buddy on my ladder and use several of the surplus fiberglass mast sections. I can have the hamstik dipole and a 146/440 vertical up in less than 5 minutes.
