    I ordered two MFJ-349 to see if there any good , they look like they are strong enough. just want your thought if you are using a MFJ-349.

    What type of antenna do you plan on using ?

    Chances are your automobile will be somewhat directional.

    a little TarHeel II and some sort of VHF/UHF I'm going to get at Huntsville Hamfest this weekend, got them in from DXEngineering, they look solid but the screws that comes look a little short but I will see tonight when I install it

    Can't tell if those are self tapping screws or not. I be sure to get as solid a mechanical connection between the plate and the bed as possible. For strength and conductivity..
    I used radiused 3/16 aluminum plates with ball mounts in the front corners of a 93 ranger. Was easier when the front bed rail and the side rails were even heights. The largest antenna I used was a Hustler with the 75/80 M super series resonator. It behaved well on the highway, just a slight curve to the tilt over masts after a few months.
