    Hi Murray,

    Mobile HF is a pretty involved topic and requires much more than a good antenna to work well. You can get some idea of what is involved in building a good mobile HF setup via our blog here.

    A good bit of work is needed on the vehicle where the Mobile HF station is installed in terms of bonding, grounding and possibly the electrical system as well if the installation is to perform well.

    Why don’t you look over the blog post in the link above. If you want to tackle the project after reading the material, lets talk live about it when we see each other next.

    73,

    Hi Murray:

    I echo Fred’s comments.  Besides Fred’s blog, I really recommend reading http://www.K0BG.com, it’s “The book” on mobile HF.  I’ll be happy to show you my mobile HF install and talk antennas, etc.
