Simply attach a trunk lip mount (such as the MFJ-347), mirror or luggage mount (like the MFJ-342), or tri-magnet mount (such as the MFJ-338T), and secure your MFJ-1624 mini bug catcher HF mobile antenna, all within minutes!
Throw your rig into the car, plug it in the cigarette lighter and turn the power down to 20 Watts or so (to avoid overloading your cigarette lighter – the MFJ-1624 handles 300 Watts PEP). Operate your HF mobile and enjoy DXing!
The MFJ-1624 bug catcher utilizes a sizable, effective air-wound inductor that surpasses other compact HF antennas. Its unique built-in matching network maintains low SWR. The 5 1/2 foot whip can easily collapse to 2 1/2 feet for convenient storage and garage use. Additionally, it is base loaded to minimize wind resistance and strain.
