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.
