    @CttAznRanger What do you already have and what radio system are you trying to set up? I decided to abort mission on my CB setup, the use-case is so minimal for me, I'll get a handheld if I really need it.

    I don't have the Rago but I have the cali-raised. Similar mount. Likewise I have the spring + 3 ft firestick tuneable, plus the radio still too actually if you need a whole setup :rofl:

    PLUS I actually do still have another 3 ft firestick in the packaging still. Amazon sent me two.

    I’ve already got a setup, bought it off of David. I already had the Cali Raised mounts, so I gave the mount to my buddy Jeff. It’s already set up, but I might go with a quick release for ease of use and whatnot

    I don't have a QR but I had the spring, that just threads on and off. Keep the box wrench in the truck for car washes, easy in easy out! :D

    HD spring for the win! The Med duty spring allows for too much regular movement of the antenna and stress on the mount. The HD spring only moves when you hit a branch or whatever offroad.

    Yeah, but then I have that cable dangling around the tailgate.
    I believe the one I have is the HD spring. Still flings around a lot at speed, but I will look around for stuff, see what's around.

    Mines only a 3 ft antenna and I had a soft topper on there, so I didn't see much bounce.

    Curious if anyone has some advice:

    I'm in the state of MA, full time career and paid hourly.

    Company wide, we all had to do a system update. I told my leader I would start the update right as I went on my lunch (50 minutes unpaid) so it would be updating while idle and therefore minimize/eliminate loss of production of myself, which was fine.

    I returned and it was still updating, and unavailable for my usual task for another 20 minutes.

    I sent my leader an email immediately upon completion (as we need to account for non-production time outside of break/lunch) and explained the above. I got a reply today asking if I am going to make up the 20 minutes or use personal time.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but how is this legal to force me to work extra for their forced system updates or make me use my PTO?

    Well somethings not right because mine doesn't move around either. Either you have the longer and heavier antenna or you have the the weaker spring or something? It shouldn't be moving.

    :thumbsup:

    IDK if that is legal or not but it sure is a scumbag move! It really doesn't sound legal.

    By doing the work didn't your computer show that you worked thru lunch... Tell him to dock you the 20 minutes and you want overtime for working thru lunch. I don't really know. I don't have the best people skills especially when pissed off.

    This all depends on whether or not your signed a company handbook with company policies in the beginning of your time there or if you had to sign any policies that needed to be updated throughout your time of employment. I have worked for many small companies that turned corporate and they like to throw in things in fine print for people to sign that cover their ass in situations like this. If you didn't sign anything, I would take the situation to HR.
