    GMRS & CB Antenna Mount & Location

    During the quarantine I’ve been working on some radio installs in my 97 LX450. I decided I didn’t want to study for the HAM license and, instead, opted for GMRS and CB. Link to products are below. I am using a Gamiviti DS NMO Mount for the GMRS and have the Massive Metal Shop hood hinge mounts...

    Rotenna the rotating antenna mount

    There was interest for a mount I made for my rig. On the what did you do to your rig this weekend. So this is the journey on designing/making a couple more. The original design uses the rack mounting bracket for location , I don't think that will do for most people.

    Hey guys. I put together an Amazon list for stuff I need to put a CB in my truck. Can you all go look at it and tell me if I'm missing anything? You can critique what I have on there a little, but please only for performance reasons. Not something like "I'll never use this because only...

    slee cb antenna mount - fixing the swr problems

    I'm dropping this thread in here just for anyone else who may have this problem. It's old news to anyone who's had this problem and it makes sense when you lay it out, but I spent a good couple of hours messing around with things before I figured out the obvious. I have a background in RF...

    slee rear bumper cb antenna mount

    Curious about this one. There's a mount down the lower bumper (big piece) which would allow the spring to flex and bend the antenna back. The higher mount (pictured) doesn't really do much for front-to-back impacts (the typical problem). Any feedback or ideas on this? Probably will put the...

    Keep losing my Firestik CB Antenna tip/cap

    Not a really big thing but I keep losing the cap on the 3' tuneable Firestik antenna when we have been offroading the last 3 times. I have it mounted on the Bandi mount and I am assuming that it snags on a tree branch and falls of. Should I crazy glue it & maybe cut off cap if I need to...

    Ham/CB Microphone Holders

    I've had my radios mounted like this for quite a few years now but haven't thought of a clever way to secure the mics. I'm curious what those with radios are doing. I've thought about the @bhicks mic holders but I use the stock cubby to hold stuff and I have two mics to secure. Gearkeepers also...
