I am considering putting a mobile vertical antenna on the saloon car. I am considering buying the Icom 706 MkII. Appreciate if you
could share your experience on
a. choice of antennae, simply a 8' whip plus tuner ,
a fixed / multiband antennae
bottom loading vs middle loading
b. type of tuner to match the vertical whip eg the ICOM 8' stainless steel whip. I understand it requires the Icom AH3 and not the
Icom AT180 for the Icom 706 MkII .
c. The best mounting choices for the 706 MkII . Icom sells the special mounting which swivels and look impressive on the brochure.
Thank you for all your comments and suggestion. Hope to work you on 20m which is opening up .
