How to get 9 ham bands from one 17′ extendable antenna whip and how to set it up FAST!

In this Video I show how to make an antenna stake that will be fast and strong for portable Ham Radio work. The stake has two places to mount antennas like a 17′ whip, ham sticks, hustler ham sticks, Wolf River Coil or even a Chamrleon CHA-Hybrid-Mini. Easy to put together, if you choose to drill and tap a 3/8"-24 fine thread hole in the top you can use the MPAS and that is the hardest part of the build. Links to the parts and items used in the video are listed below.
