(Allows mounting the Hfp-V to any vertical support,
such as a backback frame, a pipe, or a porch railing.)
(Allows mounting the HFp-V to a table top, fence slat,
or any flat surface.)
(Allows installing the HFp-V on a standard mobile mount
(with 3/8-24 threads). Note that the HFp is not strong
enough to be used in motion - this is for at-rest use only.
Preferably, there should be no vertically-oriented metal objects of a size of about half the radius distance (1/4 wavelength) inside the Halfwave Radius.
If there are, they will become part of the antenna system, and result in a de-tuning of the antenna, and a distortion of the radiation pattern.
However, if it can't be helped, it is easy to compensate and get the HFp back in resonance on your desired frequency, by shortening the whip, or, in difficult cases, by re-configuring the elements.
This chart and the footprint diagram will give you all the important characteristics of the HFp-Vertical.
