    WhoHoo!!! NEW ANTENNAS INSTALLED!!

    Hi! I got my 3 antennas installed tonight! Here are a few pix. Sorry about the quality, but it's raining and dark put. Tomorrow I will see what happens on getting new pix. What do you think?

    Antenna1: 802.11 WiFi
    Antenna2: 800MHz Motorola Spectra
    Antenna3: 450MHz Icom Dual Bander (Temp 800MHz Antenna on it though)
    Antenna4: Tiny XMD antenna (cant really see)

    Nice, I assume those are all NMO mounts...

    800MHz Moto Spectra... looks like someone is listning to local police force I got myself a few of those. If you want to get some smaller antennas AntennaPlus has a great line of Millennium antennas here http://www.antennaplus.com/. I'm not sure of the quality for transmitting, but for receiving they work great.

    Excellent, a fellow porcupine vehicle I've got to get some pictures of my car up. I've got two on the roof and two glassmount, and will be putting two on the trunk (but removing one of the glassmount antennas).

    I am stoked for you although they are kinda obtrusive (they are much better than the 15' whip antennas I see around).

    On my setup i will be going with maybe a couple combo antenna's

    Actually those two silver antennas will be replaced, the middle one with a mini black one like the front one, and the last one will be a stright one about a foot tall and black - with no coil... -BW

    Creoden: Yeah those are what the local cruisers have - I'm not sure if you saw my other thread about choosing a low profile antenna (I used these as an example)... Yeah I need to get them to look as inconspicous as possible yet still be functional.

    Check out the low-profile 800MHz antennas from Radiall/Larsen: http://www.radialllarsen.com/products_mobile_7.htm They've also got some 440 ones too, I believe.

    Cool stuff - I'll have to keep them in mind when I go to buy one.

    I hadn't seen the thread, We use them on all our cruisers up here, they work well, plus they are low profile so they 1. don't get stolen as much, and 2. no bad noise from then at high speeds.
