COMPACtenna Installation SNIP 2

Models   2M/220/440, 2M/440 and SCANNER

VHF/UHF COMPACtenna models benefit from some downward-projecting
ground plane counterpoise metal.
For mobile installations the COMPACtenna works best
at/near the corners of the vehicle roof or trunk.
Here are photos of the 7.5″ models on NMO magnet mounts:

Base Station Application

Base Station Antenna ground radials kits work very well with the VHF/UHF COMPACtennas
with the ground plane counterpoise elements bent downward to 70 degrees below the horizon.

or on a steel patio table:
