Yea, I want one too!!! As far as Echolink, but How I have always done it is have conversations with people, not on my own Node. I have to use a Proxy as well, So i dont know how it would work. Maybe Ill just put my call on here for people who want to work the station on echolink, then just count it as a contact. I dont know, I found out more, I havent seen the shack, and what I have to work with. I got Ducie alright, Im so Excitied!!!!!

I'm new to the Club but will be going to Bozeman for my first WBCCI rally. I can help out at the ham station if needed. I'm installing my ICOM 746 Pro in my Airstream using a Hustler mobile antenna system with two MO3 masts to get resonators (40M and 20M) well above the roof of the AS. I fabricated a bracket that mounts to the storage box at the rear of the trailer. The mount has a secured electrical box cover which binds tightly (100# pull) to the Hustler mag mount. The whole thing comes apart easily for storage while on the road. I will power the radio either with shore power or use the separate 70 amp-hour deep cycle marine battery that I use in my truck to power my ICOM 2M/440CM mobile. I have two problems and would appreciate any advice. First, has anyone experience with rig grounding for HF use? If so what did you do? I was thinking of binding the radio chassis to a 4' copper rod driven into the ground outside the trailer. Second, short of cutting a hole in the window screens, how have you led the coax from the antenna into the trailer? Would appreciate hearing any suggestions or of other hams' experiences.

As far as grounding the rig itself..I dont....The coax I ran through the front batt. Box vent holes and drilled a hole just large enough for the coax in the back side of the box and ran it under the couch to the operating position along the side.At Bozeman I will take my Icom 718 as my 756 Pro will be to large. I will also have my Icom 706MKIIG in my truck. I put in to run the Bozeman station and was told to be there on June 16th. Well I emailed him back and told him Im not leaving Michigan till June 22nd as Im a working stiff and taking 2 weeks vacation and would not be able to arrive that soon. After sending him 2 emails and not hearing a word back on this matter. I gave up. Sure not sending him a 3rd thats for sure. Ralph KW8G

Nice to hear from you, Dick and welcome! Sounds like you have a nice setup there for your antennas. One way you might consider for getting coax into the trailer is through the refrigerator compartment and then into the living space through a wall or cabinet. It's worked well for me on the 70's trailers. I'm not sure about the new ones. I've always just grounded to the trailer shell. I know it's not what the grounding purists would consider the ultimate ground, but it has worked for me.

One thing I didnt mention was I have a mount on my trailer tongue for a 6 ft copper pipe 1 1/2 in diameter that extends above my Airstream and a Hustler on top of that...RES
