Another favourite from 2005 was this gem, taken by Josh K6ZRX at the Livermore, California swap meet. (Thanks for the heads up, man!)
A homemade magmount with homemade test points….. it doens’t look like it could survive a brief rainstorm much less a few miles on a windy interstate. But man, those magnets will ensure that unit don’t go NOWHERE.
I’ll be publishing a few more of my favourites throughout the week.
You know, one wonders how many times this ham kept having his antenna blow off until he rebuilt it up to that many magnets and its mini-guy wires..
I took that picture! It was at the Livermore, CA swap meet.
Considering the amount of damage all that iron would do to the paintwork, wouldn’t it be cheaper to just drill a hole?
Ha! Yea… I just got to thinking, he probably has one of his radios “mounted” under the antenna. I’d imagine it would stay there with all that hamsexy magnetism at work.
Did you ever get a pic of that “madmax” ford mustang that used to frequent that swap… That one would have
been a cool shot!!
