    Hello all,

    A few weeks ago I queried everyone for ideas. Where that thread is now I have no idea. However I’ll start this one if it’s acceptable.

    I finally found a excellent screwdriver antenna used, mounted it on 2” EMT from Lowe’s, attached to bars across the front of the RV. It’s mounted to a repurposed antenna bracket I found on EBay. Then I strung out the radials, 14 ga. marine grade twisted tinned wire on the RV roof.
    Affixed the wire with dabs of silicon sealant.

    No complaints at all from the RV Park folks and it is standing up well to our very windy and lightning prone location.

    And darned if it doesn’t work exceptionally well. Worked the Canary Islands on 20 before even tuning it up properly. I am very pleased and very grateful for everyone’s help here in the Forum.

    I have posted a couple of pictures of it on my QRZ page. Originally it was on KN4JEV but I’ve recently have changed that to K4MMB.

    Now if I can only find out what happened to my old log book.
