Ham radio question: installation of 2m/70cm antenna in Classic 28'
We would like to install a short dual-band antenna in a 28' Classic. Since this trailer hasn't been built yet, we are considering asking A/S to install the mount at the factory, with the radio end of the coax terminating in the same compartment where the normal fm radio antenna comes in.
Is this feasible? Does A/S do modifications such as this? Where would such a mount be grounded?
We really don't want the hassle of setting up tripods and antennas when we stop. I guess if push came to shove we could use a glass-mounted antenna, but I really don't want to see the coax running through the lving area. (If push really came to shove, I guess, I could always go up to the pickup cab to talk, but I'd rather not.)
Anyway, if anyone out there has experience in this area, we'd love to hear from you.
