Operating a mobile HF/VHF/UHF amateur radio station is one of the fun activities enjoyed by licensed radio amateurs.  There are many contests and operating events specially designed for the mobile operator.  Mobile operations can expand your ham radio enjoyment while you get acquainted with the vast expanses of our country.

The installation of mobile antennas can be a bit tedious, considering the limitations, grounding problems, and power issues involved in today's modern trucks and passenger cars.  In this video, Creg Cottrell of Rugged Radios walks us through choosing the right mobile radio antenna, understanding ground planes, selecting mounting locations, vehicle mounting options, and basic trouble shooting associated with mobile antennas.  An excellent video tutorial with many helpful suggestions for the mobile operator.
