Guys,

Pieter has written a nice pictorial here:

As many of you are doing your own installations, this makes a handy guide.

Oom Eric

Is daar enige rede hoekom die lugdraad op die regter kant van die voertuig gemonteer moet word?Ek het gedink om myne aan die linkerkant op middelste pillaar te monteer omdat daar alreeds n gat is wat met n rubber grommit toegemaak is deur die vorige eienaar.

Dawie, maak nie verskil nie. Ek verkies die regtekant want dan die kans dat gie whip gevang sal word duer 'n tak is heelwat minder. Maar die 'quarter-wave' antennas wat ons nou gebruik vir die twee ORRA frekwensies is nie so lank as die gewone 5/8 antennas nie, so sit dit net waar dit maakliker vir jou is.

Die gat wat jy nodig het is 20mm.

As Pieter ook net die stof kon afvee!

A 4x4 is merely a machine that enables you to get stuck further away from civilization.
