    Firs are good for that purpose if you can get it high and clear of other branches.:D

    (Sorry but I just had to take that opportunity when I saw your typo)

    Diamond makes pretty decent mobile mounts but Larsen may be the best from what I've heard; worth a call to GigaParts or HRO for further suggestions. The Mobile Forum here is another good source for info on stuff like this, too.

    Too Funy Jeff ;)
    Bought one of them cheapo NMO 3/8th with fitted 17 ft coax +pl plug.. No good, after scratching my wee head.. for... some... time... o_O I concluded. that the, "Center nipple of NMO" (RF HOT) is too short and Dose not make Contact with Center Pin on the bottom of Antenna in question. However, The Antenna and the MNO Mount Are 3/8th Fittings Factors...

    However, the Org. mag-mount type NMO fits Just fine so I guess there is a difference in NMO's and its not just the Hole Size, or V/HF U/Ghz its all to do with the "Center Nipple" :rolleyes:.
    oi Mi !! explain that One over the phone to a female Sale Rep! :D

    Just call it the center contact and all the fluster goes away. :)
