    Okay, this was me playing around today. Here is my "shack" this morning after having used it to check into the Noontime Net (thanks to @W7ARR). This is using a mini Wolf River coil, an MFJ 1979 extended a couple of inches from the ceiling, with an Rg58 running to my Icom 718. You can see in the radio pic at the rear left, the red and black lines that have clamps to my Jeep's battery.

    Can you say 'compromise?'

    The antenna mount is an so-239 mounted next to my normal daily use NMO connector that goes to my Kenwood 281 in the Jeep. I had removed the 2m antenna.

    So, for all the OCD people (this includes me) who worry about making their antennas and setups perfect, well, sometimes ya just gotta get on the air.

    Very nice setup Tom! I have owned the Wolf River Coil myself and it is a performer. Is is not just a fun (and at times expensive) hobby? Hope to get to do some portable work with you soon friend.

    Nice antenna setup on the jeep looks good, On the OCD I have taken it to an art forum. I drive my wife crazy with how I do stuff, everything has to be just so and lined up. LOL

    I worked Georgia this morning on 20 meter. CB & 2m FM simplex are always there for local, with Ch28 being my favorite these days. Polite group of west side folks.
