During my last trip I got way too much static while in the car, have have a BaoFeng BF-F8HP handled. What would be a good external antenna to mount on the roof rack?
And does the coax cable length will impact negatively the quality of transmission?
I got a new Midland MXT275 radio to pair to my handled one. The antenna that came with it is not great so I got myself a 3db gain low profile antenna to go with it.
I saw that midland offer multiple mounting solutions:
hood lip mount
ditch lights mount (hood)
roof rack mount
New to overlanding and offroading, and now tackling comms. I bought both types of radios. Now figuring out what goes where.
I'm thinking if I'd only need one type of radio at a time (true? false?) then I could:
Mount both radios side by side
They could share an antenna mount
Hello, I am looking to upgrade my antenna from the Midland MXT275 included one and am going to be buying my first amateur radio system. I am looking at the Yaesu FTM-400XDR for the radio due to APRS and having a decent system for sending text messages over APRS. Antennas, cabling, and mounting...
