I purchased a Diamond HRKS Adhesive Backed Mount to use on my pick-up. The mount is packaged with a NR770HA (or HB) antenna, but the reviews on that model weren't the greatest.
The NR770 is 40.2" tall so I decided to try and find a good Diamond antenna that would outperform (according to reviews) and was close in size.
I found (and ordered) the SG7500A which is 40.6" tall and had great reviews. Since purchasing them together, I'm starting to feel a bit of buyer's remorse. Did I make a good purchase? I was speeking with a fellow ham this weekend who owns the SG7500A as was sure the HRKS would pull from the window in no time.
I planned on mounting the HRKS+SG7500A to the back window of my Pick-up truck. Drilling the roof isn't something I wanted to do. I am trying to get away from the MagMount (Don't like the wires across my roof) and I don't have a 3rd or 4th door to mount an antenna to. I also don't have a roof rack.
Is anyone using that antenna combo, or does anyone think it will work? Any other antennas I could use besides the NR770 with that mount?
My other option would be this: http://bellsouthpwp.net/b/r/breedlove1/index.html
I was waiting for the temps to get above 80F here before I glued the HRKS to my glass.
Thanks again and 73
