This is the famous HP-32FHN. A HEAVY-DUTY dual-band antenna named after the equally famous Ray Davis, KD6FHN. As one of the founding members of the Motorcycling Amateur Radio Club (MARC), Ray and his group were installing and breaking mobile antennas much too often.
The short wheel-base and high tire pressure of the Goldwings they ride transferred the road energy to the antenna, and they broke far too often About 25 years ago Ray rode in on his white Goldwing (Casper) one day and asked for help. Long story short, the HP-32FHN proved to be structurally strong enough to withstand the beating, and a friendship between the charity-driven MARC group and COMET antenna was born.
