I'm on HF. I don't work long hours but like making a contact now n' then. I just use a Yaesu FT-840 and a dipole strung along the backyard fence. I love doing a little CW at night.

They're not bent at all. I don't think there's even any rock/curb rash. I'm a very careful wheeler.
They're a little narrow for a 35x12.50R15 but I've seen it done.
