I am going to be putting the 706 into the mobile. Before that I am  
going to send it up to the guy in Maine to get checked out.
What I really want to know is how to get higher power on 20. I will  
only using it at 1/3 duty cycle some 100-150 watts might be doable. I  
am not gonna be screaming into the mic and hitting 200 watt peaks all  
the time.
If I do use it on FM I will crank it down to about 50 watts. even  
though it will be horizontally polorized. I will have the  
littlechinese radio for FM communications. I am planning on getting a  
nag mount, with cable and several ham sticks. 10/18/20 and 40. I  
realize I have to get out of the car to switch them but it will also  
give me a chance to pee. This will be happening in October. It might  
just be week-end excursions. depending on my work schedule.
So Robert - tell me what needs to be tweaked to bring up the 2M output a bit.
