Pointing Antennas - Car or Rotator?


Alden Oyer
 

This antenna support structure, made of pvc tubing, was on KF8QL’s vehicle at the Hamvention last week. Antennas range from 144 MHz to 3.4 GHz. My question to you is “What are the pros and cons of pointing the car to aim the antennas instead using a rotor to aim them?”
Is there a better material for the structure than pvc?



Good luck in the VHF/UHF contest in a few weeks.
