    Can anyone tell me the diameter of the bottom part of the antenna above where it attaches to the base? I have one on order, but it hasn’t arrived yet.

    Always hate to see a post with no responses haha.... How did your new Tarheel 200 turn out for you....

    I have the LIL TARHEEL mounted on the truck bed top rail about six inches from the rear of the truck cab area. I use it most on 80/40 and does me well... This is the only outside hole I drilled into my truck for the Ham Radio Install. All cables feed into the cab area thru the rear door edges.... The main radio chassis are mounted under the rear seat and the control head are mounted on a piece of metal velcro'd in place

    I have the UP/DOWN antenna control mounted close to the where my ICOM 706 MKII is at,

    I also have a KENWOOD TM V708A radio...

    All of this was installed back in 2010 and have not had any issues to date... I usually remove my TARHEEL antenna and lay it in the back seat area. Always concerned about thief haha...

    I am supposing you don't have a problem with swr in relation to the cab?

    If I do it is just a blind spot. I have an inline VSWR meter and tune the keyed down freq for best vswr moving the Tarheel up or down. My ICOM 706 is happy and I am making contacts on my 80M/40M bands…

    I am more of a monitor than talking... Just like to have my radio on and listen to the guys on the frequency...

    Hopefully things will let me get out and about again. I am missing out my camping trips of late...
