Hijack for any ham thoughts that come up, but I have a couple of questions. I’m going with an antenna that is “less” dependent on a ground plane and will probably mount it in the rear. In height, I’ll at least mount it at the top of the tub. I understand that using a metal extension will have an influence on the tuning of the antenna.
If I extend the antenna with, let’s say pvc pipe or fiberglass road markers, will that change antenna tuning?
How much is gained by putting more antenna over the height of the hardtop?
It doesn't matter who you are until you are whom you are supposed to be.
