I am a fairly new ham and a local CERT member. Also getting involved in the ares/races aspect. Interested in a good portable vehicle mount antenna I can use with my ft60. Any suggestions? Must be able to make portable with any vehicle. Bob K6UDK. rbtpollard@gmail.com

Many of the magnetic mount antennas get good reviews and can be easily swapped from vehicle to vehicle. Make sure it matches the frequencies you are using.

I have used the Diamond NR770HAB antenna with great success on my Chevy Silverado truck. Be sure to buy a mag mount with a rubber protected bottom rather than that thin film of foil like material. I have been using a 5" Browning mad mount. This mount leaked after a couple of months and was full of rain water causing high swr. Browning refused to replace it. Damaged the paint on the roof of the truck too so now I have to have the roof painted! Finally went to a Larsen KG7 Windows mount antenna with excellent results.
