ugly mobile antenna contest
« on: April 20, 2009, 09:06:15 PM »
Hi Mr. Mike and crew,

I just finshed making a homebrew mobile HF antenna (doglog variety) and I thought that maybe you should have an "UGLY Doglog" contest.  Could be a fun addition to the fester.  I'm afraid mine may be a contestant ::).

See you on the 1st and great job running the fest.

73,

Pete

I myself, tend to think I have a CLEAN mobile HF antenna install. Simple 102" stainless whip on a brass ball mount. Of course, the Delrin insulator could be painted to match the body of the vehicle...

No matter WHAT I say, the XYL WILL NOT drive the car anymore, even with antennas (Yeah, VHF/UHF too) off  ::)
