Motorcycle antenna KF4LQT on 16/5/16
Have a LT1200 BMW motorcycle that came factory equipped with an 11 meter radio. Handlebar mounted PTT, helmet mounted microphone and ear piece all there, even the interface cable to use a Kenwood HT in place of the 11 meter radio. All works and works well except for an antenna. As all of the body work is fiberglass or plastic and that I don't want to drill any holes in any of it, asking for thoughts or advice on an antenna to use. Don't want to shorten the 11 meter antenna but would consider that as an option. It is mounted very close to any passenger so if I do go that route, not a good idea to use an amplifier to get to 30 or so watts.
