My wife, Angela (KF5LHL) and I, Robert (KF5JWR) along with our 3 younger children are full-time rv'rs. We have a 2007 Cardinal and use "TUG" our 2008 Dodge 2500 to pull it.
Have been licensed since Feb 2011 and use a IC-706, IT-100 tuner and a homebrew 20/15/10 fan dipole to get on the air. 73's

Welcome! How do you get your dipole up? I have a 10,12, and 15 rotatable dipole that I mount to the back of the camper up at about 25' on fiberglass poles and recently been using a LiL Tarheel mounted on the edge of the roof. I too have a 706 mk2 for my mobile radio love it.
