No antenna that I can see yet.
I guess there are just too many other projects to take care of with that new one at this point.
I hope you are enjoying the new unit.

Nice looking Rig.....but where are the antennas? How does that F-150 pull that rig?

The F-150 did reasonably well in some very rolling terrian. I think by next summer I will have a much larger tranny cooler installed, but that's all it needs and that's just to "be sure"

I'm going to tinker with antennas I already have before spending any money. We are taking it out on Labor Day weekend, might try a few QSO's then. I have an old Kenwood V7A dual bander that I will permanently install when I figure out where I want to put it.
