Re: CB on a boat

Ok, Thanks to everybody's help, My ariel (Modulator) is now mounted on the boat in a position where I can easily reach it from the cockpit. Photos will follow in due course. My sister inadvertently gave me the solution by way of my using a curtain pole holder in conjunction with my counterpoise. I T...

Varying SWR reading?

Ok, Thanks to everybody's help, My ariel (Modulator) is now mounted on the boat in a position where I can easily reach it from the cockpit. Photos will follow in due course. Then I tried to swr it in and immediately came upon a problem I don't remember ever having had before. I give the following as...

Is he a member here?

Re: CB on a boat

Thanks for that info Wildfire, sadly there's no rail at the stern. What I'm looking at now is the counterpoise mounted on a modified curtain pole holder set on the side of the cockpit just behind the port navigation lamp (the lamp just above the name "Nyx" on the photo). The aerial will be my modula...

Re: CB on a boat

Often, the distance from the grabrail to the bridge structure will be 2" rarely less, and when I'm going through, there won't be time or opportunity to "pull the string". No, what I am looking for is a collapsible antenna system that can be reached from the cockpit, and collapsed when I do the winds...

Re: CB on a boat

The boat is an Elysian Bounty 27, With luck I've attached a picture of the boat. With a bit of luck there will be someone on the forum who knows the broads and understands the problem with Potter Heigham bridge. Very little clearance so the antenna needs to be "droppable" quickly and easily. I have ...

Hiya All

Hi there all, I thought I'd already posted my 'opener' but it seems to have disappeared into the Ethernet!! Well, I used to be on another CB forum but it too disappeared into the Ethernet... was it something I said? I own a boat on the Norfolk Broads and will soon be installing a rig in it. I used t...

Let this be a lesson

Now let this be a lesson to you - always check that you have spelt e-mail addresses correctly! A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter.
