Operating Portable With The Icom 7300 and Hi-Q Mobile Antenna


I'm an Amateur Radio enthusiast. I love the hobby and experimenting with radios, antennas and software. On my YouTube channel I upload videos on the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 along with Ham radio software programs. I hope to inspire people to try new things in Amateur Radio.

Nice antenna setup on the camper. I have been scratching my head on how to mount my extra Hi-Q on the quack of my overhead camper.
I will investigate using standoffs from the roof access ladder.
Also, what desk mic are you using with the 7300?

I have followed your blog and videos for a long time, thanks for all the information, on how you use the 7300. I have used a 100 ahr battery for my home station along with a Hercules II amp, Tentec Omni V first then a 7300 when it came out. a battery . I operate on a casual basis for nets and normal conversation and I have gone as long as a week without charging, Now I have an automatic charger inline; it’s all about cumulative amp-hours.

Hi Rich, what are you using for a ground? I saw in the video what looked like a short copper strap tossed up over the tarp covering the generator, but can’t see it connected to anything. Ground is so important, so asking. THANKS! 🙂

Good Morning
This is Jim w7cfl from Oregon
I have a 2013 keystone cougar(fiberglass). Have you heard of anyone using a HI Q on the fiberglass trailer.
I have a 4/80 hi q, love the antenna. It’s my second ,used the first one while driving semi.
If you have an idea how to get it to work or maybe a source I can go too.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
73! Jim
