Camping is one of America’s all-time favorite pastimes. And one of the most essential tools used when camping out in the woods is ham radio. The ham radio’s antenna is the part responsible for sending and receiving signals. Problem is, finding a place to mount it can be quite difficult.
There are antenna mounts available in your local radio shop, but if you’re a true-blooded DIY fanatic, you’d want to show off your friends just how resourceful you can get. And resourcefulness means you are able to use one object for a different purpose. This video might provide you some ideas.
In this video, the author will show you how to make a homebrew ham radio antenna mount if you don’t already have one. The project is a great alternative for store-bought antenna mounts because it’s cheap, and the parts used can be used somewhere else when you’re not using your ham radio.
