I am mostly mobile these days as I still cannot afford
an apartment! let alone home.
I still will set up an occasional wire outside ( the neighbors seem to keep their shades open all the time although most of them are sight impaired,they are  very wary of sounds, and the rent a cops just appear from nowwhere, believe me I have been going through this for over 20 years.
if I am staying in my temporary (very temporary)which is about the size of a large closet.
the indoor wire can run from from one wall of my tiny room to the wall in the living room.
I will still have the sched site (if you don't know by know) so hams with (severe)antenna restrictions can qso.
But what I am trying to have on my mobile is an sgc-235
to replace the 237 (I don't realy need it as my kite antenna seems to work beutifully).
but for those times when there is no wind, I plan to
just wind the wire I use for the kite (around 300 ft)
depending on band around one of those telescoping
fiberglass poles.
When I want to pickup (from campsite) and leave (hopefully I will remember) to collapse the pole to
the telescope length.

All of the SGC units can be used with 102" whips for coverage between 40 and 10. If you use the right 20 or 40 meter antenna with it, most will cover 80 too. So save your bucks.

You might want to read my three articles on this web site for more information.

I don't want to give you grief, I do have question. I looked up your callsign and it shows "general delivery". When I got my license(s), the application asked for a permanent station address. Is that requirement now gone? Can you get a license with no fixed address for the station? I know if the FCC sends you a letter and it is returned, your active license is terminated. Maybe THAT would explain why the FCC said they wouldn't enforce the PRB-1 in CC&R restricted areas and that working mobile or at another person's station would suffice. Interesting.
