I tell you how to mount and get the best SWR on a perfect quarter wave antenna in this video and dont forget to Look for my awesome custom Cobra CBs on ebay for sale. You will be heard! Buy this riser off ebay its a ten inch riser. Its called a whip adjuster and it cost 50 bucks ouch but damn well worth it. Got the whip at radio shack. for 20 bucks. They sell them on ebay and amazon.
I dug a 36 inch deep and 18 inches wide hole for my post and mixed up and poured in 8 50 lb bags of concrete to set my 6x6 post in the ground. I let it cure for one week. I think a week and a couple of days before I started to work on it.
I finally purchased and received a MPPT charge controller. It can track and charge your batteries at the highest possible power. It is actual Multi Point Power Tracking. I use two panels in a series makes close to 80 volts. Charges my 12 volt bank of Optima yellow top batteries.
I started the video of the solar trackers at 1:30 pm and missed the whole morning tracking so its not a full day and the camera finally froze after awhile because it is just too cold out side.. So its not near a full day of solar tacking on on video. I will try for a better video when it gets warmer. I was impressed a little bit and look at my black cat sunning himself in the background by the porch ha ha lol.
Here is what my set up looks like with the battery inverter Charge Controller and MT50 monitor.
