Author Topic: Houston TX - Antenna Tune?  (Read 1262 times)

Greetings. I'm usually pretty self sufficient but in this case I need a suggestion. I'm wrapping up the install of 2 NMO mounts on the roof of my expedition and power from the battery for the rig. I have a specialty unity-gain antenna (low profile for parking garage reasons).

I lack the gear/analyzer to tune the antenna myself for 144-148. As such, I'm looking for recommendations for a local (Houston TX) shop that can tune it for me and hopefully not in return for a arm/leg. Understood that I could purchase the gear - just hard to justify for one installation.

Any ideas?

Thx & 73.

If you cut them like the chart says, you'll be close enough 99% of the time.

Thanks for the response. This unity antenna is one of those stealth types. Similar to those you see on the back of law enforcement vehicles. The tuning method revolves around the adjustment of a screw with the supplied nylon/plastic tool. No radials involved. Smiley
