    I'm just trying to get some ideas on where to mount a whip, I don't want my options to consist entirely of a magnetic roof mounted whip lol. To be
    specific, I plan to pick up a Cobra 75 WX ST so, just wondering what I should do for the whip once I get the shell on there. The shell is a Leer 100R.

    I have a shell too. I want to mount mine up where the hood closes. Opposite of the factory antenna. They make a bracket that mounts under the hood and sticks out. I can't seem to find it though :(

    Just an FYI - You don't necessarily need to get a TALL whip antennae. I have a K40 Powerwhip that's only 24" tall. Works great in certain mounting siutations and doesn't overly extend over the top of the vehicle.
