I am a full time rver and have used all kinds of ants.. so much for that statement.
What I want to mention is that in our 5th wheel which is also fiberglass. I have
tried all kinds of ants with no success on the ladder, The main point being is the equipment is
located in the rear about ten feet or so from the ladder and ants.. YOU will get rf feedback this
close ! Since I run all ants from the front which is about 30 plus feet away from the
radios, I do not have any problems at all. I have run the screwdriver, hust res etc.
My ant of choice now is the hamsticks for many reasons. I also run an elec
power company disconnect pole on the front which goes up about 30 feet thus
i use rotabable hamsticks. reports sometimes are that people think i am running
a beam. Back to the point, I have found that most anything will load up ! I have used
ants that in theory should not have worked but did just fine.. As someone else
pointed out "TRY it" There are some links, pictures of what I use on my home
page if you wish to look. http://www.qsl.net/wa2mzf
Also we do hf pactor
for our email on the road. This system has served us well for over four years now
when we do not have a phone ! Again info on that on our home page.
An additional side note. I also pulled off the rubber cap so to speak which seals the roof
to the side, all rvs have this. And installed a 34 foot wire on each side of the coach
thinking of using this for an antenna. The problem here again is too much rf near the
rig. You just have to get the ants as far from the rig as you can when living in
a fiberglass house ! hi.. 73 jim wa2mzf
