Re: High gain AM/FM automotive antenna mast?

I would take a look at the Ed Fong antennas for GMRS. Should do much better than your current antenna, but will require you to hoist them in the air. While they are made for GMRS rx/tx, I bet they would also improve AM/FM. Swap for the shorty when on the move. I might Google around for solutions to...

Re: High gain AM/FM automotive antenna mast?

Everything I know about omni-directional antennas says "shorter = less good" until you reach a certain point with respect to the length of the radio wave you are trying to capture. I think you are seeing that fact played out in the antennas you are looking at. Now, it sounds like you ALSO have ques...

High gain AM/FM automotive antenna mast?

Just looking for a stock replacement mast (Hopefully shorter.) that screws into my Jeep Wrangler TJ's antenna mount. I think it's the standard thread pattern. Something like this. But that will improve the gain of my radio - to the degree that it's worth the extra money? Is this not possible? I'm no...

Re: SHTF and you can only have one gun

Well, to be honest, I hate the 9x19mm and the jam prone AR15/M16 (the U.S. military claims to have fixed the jam issues with every iteration, yet at gen 4 it still is a jam prone rifle/carbine platform, and the M855.SS109 rounds punch a narrow, little, thru and thru .22 caliber hole that requires m...

Man, that's a thinker.

Re: 2 pages of printed survival data?

there is an app called "Offline Survival Manual" that would fit the bill for his phone. Yes. I can get several. The original idea was a survival/first aid kit for a SHTF event. So the printed book was my goal. Or small printed material. In the case of power and cell outage. But I like the idea of a...

Why not just load some stuff on his phone and then give him a back up lithium battery for the phone?

"Trancia"? Looks like a low-quality knock-off of Trangia.
I'm sure it's a misspelling. They are too scratched up and worn to be knockoffs. This is my local surplus store. I'd say they are legit. I mean I'm sure it's Sweden's version of one.

Re: Moab bought a '99 Jeep Wrangler TJ!

So I finally found a transmission shop I could trust. My main mechanic hooked me up with a friend of his that owns a transmission shop. So I find out tomorrow if it's a $300 sensor or a $1200 rebuild. Those prices are very low - for here anyway. I would imagine most shops around here charging at lea...

Re: Moab bought a '99 Jeep Wrangler TJ!

The only other issue I have is a P0743 code and a check engine light. It's an auto trans code. May just need a sensor or rebuilt. Kind of freaked out about it. As I had it inspected at the dealership before I bought it. And they showed no problem with the trans except it needed a fluid change. Thin...
