Ok, guys and gals, thanks for your help and ideas. Here's an update on my
motorized wheelchair hf/vhf/uhf mobile ham station. I mounted my Yaesu
FT-100D on the side of my speedy 5 mph motorized wheelchair. fits great.
it is being powered by a 22NF deep cycle gel cell, that also runs my
respirator. the rig is set for 5 watts on HF and 1 watt on vhf/uhf. don't
wanna kill my vent battery. i need to breathe! I mounted the Miracle Whip
antenna on a Diamond K540KM luggage mount. it is mounted on the chair's
push handle. I'll mount the AL-800 2-meter/440 whip on the chair's other
push handle with another Diamond K540KM. I already tried the Miracle Whip.
Works great. got a perfect swr on 17-meters! i love that band. As soon as
the setup is complete, i'll put a pix on my website. u can see my former
ham wheelchair mobile now on my website. there's just the HT on that pix.
just click on the link below. tnx, 73 and 88!
