Hi All

Just looking for some advice on a antenna for my campervan.

I am looking at getting a pole which would be inserted into the ground and then mounting an antenna onto that.

This would only be used when parked up.

The van has a plastic roof even though I have a springer on a metal roof rack (grounded to the metal body)

Thanks in advance.
Will

Hi Will

Would this be for CB, PMR or both?

I use a drive on plate and can insert Aluminium poles or a fibre glass pole, which allows me the choice of a metal Silver Rod style antenna or a wire T2LT antenna.

Hopes this gives you some ideas

Hi there Will.
Just found this post! I have a campervan too and the same with a GPR Roof. I mount a red devil or a 1/4 wave with a mag mount on my bonnet.   SWR is 1.1 to 1,2 and get out very well with that setup. It’s also very portable when touring.
Oh and I use an angle connector so the antenna is upright from the angle of the bonnet.
I hope this helps?

Regards Bob.

I have a friend and he has a camper van, he has a antenna for boats set up for driving and T2LT as a few members have said, even with the Boat antenna, he has got a few DX contacts .

I will be taking my SS9900 touring France for 3 months again this year. I won’t be using it mobile so I will be making a couple of T2LTs, one for 10m one for 11m and throwing them over the nearest tree. Enjoy your travels.
