I have a Icom IC 706 MKII in my Landrover since a few years. In the moment I´am learning morse code and at the end I will have a full (class 1) licence.
So I´am looking for putting a HF aerial on my Landrover. As you can see at: http://lr-109.de/my_109/pic1999.html
I´ve some genuine british army aerials fitted. So I think I can use this 9 Feet long aerials on the fron wings.
I can fit a smaller Autotuner in one of the boxes that are below the whip http://www.qsl.net/dg5dbv/mylr3.htm
So I can use one aerial for the higher band (20m to 10m) and fit a kind of coil in the other box to use the other aerial on the lower bands (80m, 40m, 30m) because 9 feet is much to short for the auto tuners for this bands without extra help.
I can use a relay after the auto tuner to change the antennas.
The AH-4 or the SGC 231 will fit into this Boxes. I found the RT-11 from ldg-electronics and it is much cheaper than the others.
Any experiance with a Setup like this. Any Tips for the Coil an the lowband antenna ?
