Tesla Model 3 + HAM Radio antenna v2

After few weeks of testing original Diamond configurationNR770HNMO Dualband Mobile Antenna is too tall compared to Tesla Model 3 and I ordered shorter version: Diamond NR72BNMO Dualband Mobile Antenna as you can see from photos, it’s way better from aerodynamic point of view

HAM Radio kit and Tesla Model 3 antenna

After few days of planning, I’m switching to new configuration for car and home.

Advantages of new configuration are:

  • Antenna in car is smaller (rom 38.2″ to 13.8″) and still support up to 100W output
  • New car antenna is compatible with NMO connector already in car
  • Mag Mount is heavy to keep existing antenna stable with NMO connector and it can be used home, carry around as external antenna for HAM radio Go-Kit or stored in trunk of car of need more coverage.

Here is final setup:
