    ... So, did you get an antenna up and working?

    Greetings Craig,

    I have a LittleTarheel II on my RV, and attached it to the top of the ladder on the rear of the motorhome. I used Foil HVAC tape that I got from The local hardware store and cut tuned radials. It works OK. One suggestion, make sure that the adhesive is conductive. I would recommend that you re-consider laying the antenna down pointing aft or to the rear of the trailer. While travelling during rain storms/bad weather, rain will find it's way into the antenna as the bottom sleeve is not sealed. This could be disastrous for the coil and the motor/gearbox. I lived up north for quite a while and the residual salt and from winter and water will not be kind to the inside of the antenna.

    Just some thoughts. Good Luck.
