Default WV6Z Screwdriver Install

The title sez it all.......











The wire nuts have been replaced with connectors and covered with heat shrink tubing.

Not as pretty as Buddy's, but, it'll do 6 through 80 without having to climb up on the back bumper to change out Hamsticks now!

HEy, What kind of orange juice do you use with your screwdrivers? :D

I always wanted to get a screwdriver antenna. But had to settle with a manual homemade job.

Maybe we can work mobile to mobile now bro.
Good job.

Get that rascal to tune up on 60m and join us on channel 4 from about 8 to 10am! It works GREAT, BTW only issue is RF on 10m, but for 10m I have a Lakeview colinear that can be seen on the rear drivers side of the roof.

Oh, if no one is around on 60m in the mornings, I sometimes check in on SouthCARS on 7.251 after 8am.

Hope to catch you too Chris...... mobile ops is such a blast I rarely fire up anything in the shack these days...... however, finding an excuse to be mobile all of the time does get expensive at the fuel pumps.

Let me know where you may be monitoring Buddy, I will schedule a coffee break around then so that we can try some mobile to mobile if you like.
