High Winds Antenna

I purchased a new antenna for my VHF/UHF mobile rig in the car this morning and was curious about how much deflection the wind was giving it. How much it moves that is since it’s only about eighteen inches tall yet still produces a fair amount of Gain (how well it ‘hears’) for it’s small size. It has to fit under my carport!

I got the not-so-bright idea to shove my iPhone out the window to record things. Believe me, I had a death grip on that phone! I got the information I was curious about and am very satisfied with it’s performance. Do be warned though, if you play this video, your volume should be zeroed out or damn close to it, it’s sooo loud!! Sorry about the Portrait mode, this is a crap video…
