Hi Calvin, I heard a couple of voices that I recognized but could not hear enough to understand what they were saying. I don't know if there was an active NCS or not. Band conditions here on the east shore of Lake Michigan were terrible.

Thanks Hank,
Since the class B we purchased is based on a Mercedes Benz Sprinter Van, the roof top rails turned out to be the way to mount antennas. We ordered the rail clips from the Sprinter Store ( and fabricated aluminum brackets. I have already installed a dual-bander, and my Yaesu HF Screwdriver antenna (ATAS 120A) and they appear to work fine. Routing the coax will be the next challenge :-).

Never mind, I spend 5 minutes looking and the moment I leave the post I find the password edit area.

Hello Dave and Richard, Sorry about the delayed response.

Regarding RFI, I have not had any problem with RFI to my TST TPMS system, or other systems from my ham radio equipment. BUT - I have found that many of the LED lighting systems do cause broad band noise in the HF and the VHF ham reception as well as to digital TV. One of my lights would completely blank out one of the TV frequencies. Last week I bought some more expensive LEDs from a company owned by a ham and those have not caused any problems. And most of us have experienced the noise that inexpensive modified square wave inverts cause on our ham bands.

As to wiring
