    Just a CB and 2m - tried to be a little more conscious of where my antenna leads were running this time, trying to avoid interference on CH11 when transmitting on the 2m. Seems to be working.

    I've gotten tired of problems with my fiberglass antennas so I just went to a 50" steel whip antenna. I don't know yet how it transmits but I'm picking up traffic while inside my garage that I never did before.

    It is a little more money to run a NMO Mount, but is very easy to change things around once their in place. I ran one on my log truck (mirror mount) and it held up well with major daily abuse. This one looks good as it is a grounded antenna, less ground plane needed.

    Ran these for the other guys in the fleet and they held up well, log trucks, skidders, and pickups.
