RAV Rack
I decided to put together a "Safari" style roof rack for my Toyota RAV 4 mobile Ham Station using some mesh, square tube and a bit of M.I.G Welding.
It turned out OK and as you can see I have loaded it up ready for our Scottish Camping holiday this coming week. I will be using the Yaesu FT-857 with Maldol HFC Mono Band Antenna's, listen out for me working as 2M0HTS/M from N.W Scotland on 20M, 40M, 80M and some 2M activity. You can keep up to date and find out when I am active by following twitter, frequency's used will be tweeted to my 2E0HTS Twitter account. (Mobile Phone Signal Permitting)

    Thanks Tomas, It took a couple of hours to make and will be a very useful "zahradka". I finished loading up the camping gear, fit some ties, and a water proof sheet.
    Now ready to hit the road, should be tomorrow for a long drive. Plenty of /M h.i

    I hope to catch you somewhere on the bands from GM Land.

    73 catch up soon!

    Simon
