Yeah, The ground plane with the hood mount seems to be the best if you can live with looking at the hood mount all the time.

Unless you have a huge bed rack with a high mount location.

You should move yours it's the best place to put it

Yea the bracket we bought just isn't long enough. Probably gonna buy a bit of stainless to fab something up

I came up with mounting with the mirror so you wouldn't see it as much..but can get it work

What?? No it doesn't. It restricts you signal. Especially when you guys where around a corner..and you saw the tuning..was damn near perfect.

It's not probably astronomically better. But I'm confident in saying I have a bit of range advantage..just due t the longer antenna..I don't think the mounting height effects that..

Either way. Your radio is the only radio I've even talked too that I could always hear haha
