After I experimented with various things to learn how the TH worked, I moved my setup to the warehouse roof with a truck toolbox. I had predrilled a hole in the top of the toolbox and fitted a 3/8-24 antenna mount. After securing the box to the roof, I screwed the whip onto connector I mounted on the box and connected it to the wire side of the TH 5 with a short piece of wire. The ATU was still able to tune this setup.
I am using the AMT3000 in the same toolbox with the loading coil on top. There is plenty of room for “things”.
I am going to try the same thing on the ground with a future experiment. An old metal ammo box would also work. I will use that for future setups especially with smaller transmitters such as the SSTRAN products.
