Installing a mobile HF antenna in today's modern vehicles can be a challenge, especially if your new car or truck contains a lot of non-metal parts.

Despite the lack of easy antenna locations these days, K1GMM has found a way around these limitations and has made an effective, HF mobile antenna with a few selected parts.

Here are some of his observations:

"Put together the HF mobile setup in the vw cc. 1st call a station in Detroit responded. Nice. Not a lot of science to it but wanted to try to throw some things together and see if they worked. It does. Loads 40-6 with a 1.2-1.5 swr using the AT7000 auto tuner. Homebrewed the mount for the ic7000 control head out of some scraps of pvc and a little velcro. Antenna mount is a Comet RS940. Nice big trunk lip mount. 73 K1GMM Music/Drums by K1GMM"
