Any Berk owners that are Ham Radio Ops ?

I know there are a few threads around about antenna installs on coaches, 5ers and TTs, but I was just curious if any Berk owners have successfully mounted mobile hf antennas on their Berk.

I was thinking possibly using the 9/16ths bolt at the top of the mirror arm.

Thanks,
Ken

I have, all my cables run un the coach and up the ladder. HF antenna and erection fixture is mounded to the ladder. I'm thinking about selling the fixture and mount it on the roof I have a Tarheel lift and lay unit I will put on the roof. I use a Hi Q 10 thru 160 antenna with a Henry SS-750 amp. Contact me off line for more info W7JL@W7JL.net

the 9/16 on the mirror arm is for releasing the mirror and for it's adjustment!!

You can connect the antenna to the mirror arm with drill screws .
drill a hole at the bottom of the arm and run the cables into the cabin.

the mirror element is hollow ,all the electrical wires that operate the mirror are there!

The simplest way is to take off the whole mirror element, (two screws that connect the body) look out !! there is rubber insulation layer , save it !!

There is a hole in the body you can pass through it without a problem antenna cables.

i did it
