Hi All,
I have heard a couple times on the FM birds of stations
signing mobile. I wonder what type of antennas are used for mobile.
I have an Arrow I use portable with my HT. I have a full duplex Icom
FM rig and could just barely hear HO-68  on a Wednesday pass up in Em95.
No preamp or anything yet and just a 1/4 wave duobander.
What would it take to operate truly mobile from an antenna standpoint.
Just playing with the idea. I travel a bit during Spring and Summer and 
might be fun to try.
