    Looking to invest in a quality FTM-400 setup for my vehicle. Looking for the best antenna I can mount using the lip mount method.

    If you're looking for something well-proven, Larsen, Diamond, and probably others can provide good equipment for mobile operation. I actually drilled a couple of holes in my car (and the ones preceding it) to accommodate screw-down antennas, but those are just a few of the many options. Good hunting!

    I've been using Diamon NR770H antennas on multiple vehicles for many years with good results. That is what is hooked to my FTM-400. If you want something a bit shorter I would suggest the Austin 500C. I've got one on my wife's car and have been quite impressed with it.
