The J-Pole goes mobile

This weekend, along with many other volunteers, I am going to be helping with communications for the Madison Marathon.

This will be my first Public Service Event, so I want to make a good impression on my fellow hams. Since an HT antenna is notorious for not quite being good enough, I decided to mount the J-Pole sitting in the garage to my station wagon. I also have a little mag mount antenna on the hood, just in case. I will have the 2M mobile rig that was gifted to me by Troy KB9AZZ when I first got my license, as well as my Wouxun HT with spare batteries. Hopefully that is enough!

I used the bikerack, zip ties and a short piece of conduit to secure and stabalize it.
