Full Series Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3k_zbyfFeEdLOsk_c6juJsdDqvMGZgP7 In the sixth instalment of the series, we talk about all the radio gear, and what all the antennas are for, covering the Icom 7100 HF/VHF/UHF radio, Codan 9323 HF radio, Uniden UH5060 UHF CB, then cover antennas - Diamond NR770HSP 2/70, Diamond HF30CL, RFI Mopole, Codan 9350, why mounting one became a little trickier than when it was originally made, and the three whips we have for it, the RFI CD7194 4G antenna, Mikrotik RBM11G with Sierra Wireless MC7430, how you power all of this without standby drain, and how you make the vehicle quieter in the HF band so that you can hear incoming radio signals over the vehicle’s radio noise.
