hi all,

here is how you are able to make a 1/4 wave tank whip to a home base antenna,
if you have a steel or a metal gutter on your house or garage what is near your house here is what you will be able to do & what you will need,

as long as your gutter is steel or metal all you will need is one steel gutter mount with a 3/8 adapter to fit your tank whip on to to sit on the gutter mount,

& below is a close up shot of the gutter mount on the gutter below the gutter mount is what we call a balun & can be easily done by just winding the coax round in a circle & tightening the coax up but not essential just make sure you have enough coax to reach from the gutter to your radio. :wink: *King*

the std antenna on the daf is quite good needs swring and it is in the wrong place you should get better results if you can side mount it but doing so is not for the faint hearted
