Well I hope to have my IC-706 mk2 fitted in the next few days.
Live in a flat so will not be doing much from home

Welcome to HRF, make yourself at home!

Nice looking mobile shack, hope you get lots of enjoyment using it once the 706 is installed what antenna you looking at using on the car?

Thanks Pete
The mount is home made, the base is an Alinco EA-HFM1 with an IronHorse whip. I have got the whip from the base but no way of tuning it.

The plan is to fit a second battery to run the radio and also an inverter so that we can also use our laptops and other things when out and about.
