HAM radio and antenna questions
#1
Just got my technician’s license (past the test) yesterday and while I am awaiting my license to show up in the FCC database I would like to find a great antenna to put on our coach.  Unfortunately we don’t have a nice ladder to mount the antenna to like a Wanderlodge (I miss Mauvelous some times)... 

Any suggestions for antennas that would work on the roof (aluminum) or on the fiberglass rear cap?  I was looking at some of the motorized rigs but not sure what really works.  We want to do Emergency mobile comms for Red Cross disasters and storm chase.  What radios do ya’ll recommend please?

Have you thought about using the receiver hitch to make up an antenna mount? Maybe weld up some square tubing to approximate ladder mounting from WL.
