    Right now I’m using a Tacoma specific NMO mount with a 3/8/24 adapter and using multiple single band ham sticks. As of last night, I punched the order in for an ATAS 120a and a Diamond K400c mount. I’ll be returning the NMO mount a uhf/vhf antenna , and mounting the atas on the right side of the hood/ fender.

    That's a lot of metal. What bands do you use this setup on?

    Some scrap Al strapped to Rhino rack.10-40m with hamsticks.

    I only use mobile HF for CW contests, so it's more convenient to have a temporary install.

    I also have a Uniden Bearcat, and a 3d printer... where did you find the STL fire for the radio box/sleeve to hold the radio on the side of the center console? I can print my own.
