Does anyone in this group camp?

I typically carry a quad band in my truck when we travel. We have a fifth wheel and a pop-up tent camper.

I would be curious to hear what set up you use when traveling.

Thanks KM4YPM

To tune your coax, here is the formula: 492 X (Velocity Factor) divided by Frequency (MHz) = Full Wavelength divided by 2 = Half wavelength.
Velocity Factor for Coax 8X is .82, Coax 8U is .84, Coax LMR 400 is .85
5/8 wavelength = 0.625

Tune your coax to the most used frequency and you will drive all of your power out with no return to the radio. This is the secret for a 1:1 SWR! Enjoy!
