Mike, KC2Q designed the KC2Q-Quad band HF Mobile antenna Adaptor in 1982. A totally Stainless Steel Adaptor that allows up to 4 Hustler Resonatores, for the use of any 5 bands by just switching the freq. on the radio from inside of the mobile. With the Hustler 54 in. mast U have 6 mtrs., + 10, 15, 20, and 40 mtrs., or 17 or 80 meter resonators can be substituted, (No stopping to change resonators, no tuner needed, etc.) Works great!
Tnx for stopping by.
