    The first 20 pages are the slides, the next 20 are slides + notes.

    When I mentioned using an NMO adapter for an outside antenna to stay out of the rain, I really meant that for anyone that already has an NMO mount. David and Mary pointed out a couple of better options if you _dont_ hanve an NMO mount.

    The MFJ-310, HT Window Mount Clip lets you stick an HT antenna on a car window – there are BNC and SMA versions.

    There are also some antenna mounts that use a short, thin piece of coax that can go through a closed car door, and still not leak. One example: https://www.gigaparts.com/diamond-antenna-k515s.html
