First picture shows the bottom side of the ball mount. Usually I would mount my AH-4 wire tuner next to the ball mount but this year I am going to try using the Hustler resonators.
(Told you it was crude)
Picture below shows the mount as it is first dropped into place.
Next step is to connect the 2 side bonding straps and the strap that goes down to the frame. 1" stainless braid. Connection to the edge of the bed is all stainless hardware.
Then to put on the gravity defying straps.
Last picture taken in the dark but you get the idea. It wins an ugly award. Let the antenna shammers bash away!
I do hope to try a screwdriver antenna someday. I saw this setup at Dayton last year and would love to try it sometime.
Tomorrow it is supposed to rain throughout the day. Hopefully I will get the antennas tuned!
