Motorhome Radios and Antennas

Overall view of the motorhome with the 33' fiberglass push up pole from The Mast Company. The antenna is a home brew 80 Meter Carolina Windom. See here for further details on the Windom. The white base load is a marine CB. To the right of the pole is a 5/8 wave base load for the 2 Meter radio.

Current balm made from 6 clamp on torroids from the Wireman.The RG58 feed line is looped through the torroids 3 times. As I have stated in my other pages, my current balms are somewhat a guess from looking at many articles on the internet. You know they work when your tuner tunes properly. When they don't your tuner does a long mad hunt and never seems to settle end. Common mode current? ( Also see The Saga of the Balun )

Mast in a RV flagpole mount I got at the Del Mar Fair.

Motorhome dash. Top my Kenwood TS-130 and LDG 100 tuner. These are normally part of my HF go kit and are stored in a Pelican case. Powered by 2 power pole connectors in the dash which are hooked up to the RV battery. Below the Motorhome 2M IC-2100 and Motorola CB Radio.
