Re: Portable light

Although not really authentic to the Pinzgauer, I have bought a couple surplus 24v Hella work lights that I like a lot. They have a magnetic base so obviously it will attach anywhere I wont them on the Pinz. I have a K version so I converted the light's original plug to a pingauer 2 pin used for the...

Re: Best Book for Amateur Radio Technician license

I am a bit tardy to this discussion. Life gets busy so I have not been on the forum for a while. I had the same problem of being able to memorize all of the answers using the online study tests/flash cards and a good recall of past physics classes but I did not really obtain a basic understanding of...

Re: Bikmakr's/mule expedition winch mount

A closer review of the photos and the front of my Pinz has answered my own question, Thanks.
It appears that this could be remedied with a little modification to the design allowing for it to be spaced out to the front of the bumperettes.

Re: Bikmakr's/mule expedition winch mount

I am confused as to why the stock bumperettes can not be used. Apparently this bolts in the same place. Is there not enough clearance behind the mount? I really like this mount but not using the stock bumperettes is a big negative for me. Also wondering if the stock pin can take the place of the bol...

Re: WTB: 710K Antennas w/ Base

Yes, I have read your post about your antennae. Do you have a photo of your AT-1011 in driving mode? I see pic with it upright in that older thread. It looks long to just pull back over the Pinz. And, I would be interested in your loading coil and the radio/ antenna tuner you use. Perhaps this is re...

Re: WTB: 710K Antennas w/ Base

Thanks Ron! I am just thinking about getting into HF as you can tell by my question suggesting inexperience. I am surprised that it only offers the three civilian bands. If I do HF out of the Pinz I guess I will be parked most of the time and could just put up a separate vertical antenna or wire. Or...

Re: WTB: 710K Antennas w/ Base

I believe those antennae covered the 30-76MHZ HF. I wonder if anybody has tried using a civilian HF rig such as a Yaesu 857 or 450d with them. Or if one thinks it would be worth the effort to try to get them to work.

(obviously I am directing this to Rmel. )

Re: WTB: 710K Antennas w/ Base

That looks awesome! What antenna elements did you put on the bases and where did you get them? Are you using them or just restoring to original appearance? I am very impressed with the whole vehicle. Where are you located?

Re: SSI issues

Looking forward to responses as I have had difficulty as well. Although I have set the SSI as directed, attempts to start/run suggest a timing problem. I am confused about your report of setting timing at 2 degrees because the SSI is set one way, red led on at TDC. Life has gotten in my war to pursu...

Re: 25% tariff on imported collector vehicles & parts...?

Comment submitted! I encourage all to do so as well. And to follow Rmel's example and plant a seed of ideas for others to comment, here is my comment. "Firstly I want to agree that the industrial infrastructure of the US has been harmed by poor trade policies. However, placing a tariff on historic v...

Sorry, I just now saw this. I have removed the top and discussed it in this past thread:

Happy to try to answer any questions.
