Well, here's my first rover attempt:
Stack of two 2M m2 Halos using their "Big Foot" mag mount.
I must say that I am really impressed with how well the whole setup
withstands the windage created by my heavy foot driving down the 405
here in So. Cal.
I will probably guy it here shortly mainly to prevent fluttering of my
signal while mobile but it certainly doesn't need them.
My present rig in the truck is an IC-706 putting out a max of 50W (for now).
I made my first contact this morning via an arranged sked on 144.20. He
was mobile in DM03 and I was parked in DM13 at the time. Unfortunately,
he was only vertically polarized so I could only copy him at a 3x3 even
though I was into him as a 5x9.
Many other things planned for the rover as time and money permits.
