Hi Dan, Glad to have you on the roster! Although I hope to attend Quartzfest some day, I have not been able to get over there yet. We have a week long Christmas and New Years gathering in Birmingham Alabama each year with our 5 kids, 11 grand-kids, 2 great-grand-kids, and uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces,etc, and it is just too far for us to drive in the time left after January 2nd.

I also have used an Eagle One mounted on the back of my RV and it has performed well for me over the last 9 years.

I look forward to meeting you at a rally.

We plan on attending the Quartzfest get-to-gether in January. Anyone else? I hope to pick some ham brains to get more efficient in using my FT 450D. I have an Eagle One mounted on the RV and what little I have used it, it seems to get better reception than my OCF dipole mounted on my back deck, up 33ft with an inverted V.

Hope to see some of you in AZ

Hello Steve and David,

I have used an Eagle One push-up vertical antenna for most of the years I have been RVing. It is mounted to the ladder on the back of my motor home and when collapsed it it is barely above the roof, not as high as the A/C units on top of the coach. When extended it i
