Hey there! I just got my ticket in May 18 and obviously very new at all of this. I was interested in the hobby because of my dad but I'm not technically knowledgeable about the science of it. I've been pondering over my mobile install for weeks and seeing all sorts of contradicting information. I've changed my mind a few times about it and at this point I just really need someone to tell me what to buy and how to do it. Here's what I'm working with and what my plan was. 2008 TOYOTA Highlander. Yaesu FTM3200DR Antenna mount https://www.hamradio.com/detail.cfm?pid=H0-009010 Antenna https://www.hamradio.com/detail.cfm?pid=H0-003457 I don't plan on having my vehicle much longer so I wanted a somewhat less permanent "permanent" install if that makes sense. I planned to install on the centerish lip of my rear lift gate or the side. My lift gate also has a rear window that opens, I'm hoping that this mount will allow me to swivel the antenna around so I can still use the glass portion. Being attached to the lift gate itself should give me no issues in opening the gate. I also planned on installing it here because I park in a low clearance concrete parking garage daily so I need the antenna to be lower profile. I have considered bend down antennas as well as true low profile antennas and even mag antennas but don't want to have to get out of my vehicle to remove etc for clearance. The Yaesu is also my Base station. I will be using at home as well as my vehicle so I need to be able to access and remove/unplug easily. Eventually I'll get something permanent for my vehicle that I can leave in there. My question is about the cables and supplies I need. I've been all over HamRadio.com trying to figure out what exactly I need to purchase. It's overwhelming to me to say the least. I hear I should fuse the connection at the battery, other places I hear to leave the fuse off the negative lead. I've read a number of different things and I just want clear understanding on how this needs to be done to be safely and effectively. Thanks in advance!
