thank you antenna works great. i put it on the rear part of the roof it cannot be seen unless you were looking for it in rear yard . only made one contact about 30 miles away and he said my signal was very strong . it seems there aren't many hams in my area as i try doing cq and no one ever answers lol hardly hear anyone talking at night, unless its the repeaters giving call signs, occasionally i hear mobile hams talking in the am using mobile radios, like i say very few hams in my area i guess. thanks again 73I take it you are in a mobile home?
That gives you a good place to start. The metal body of the trailer provides an excellent ground plane. Installing a mobile dual band antenna on your roof would work well. If you go with the shorter models, they'll be about 19" tall. They'll be barely noticeable unless someone is specifically looking.
