    ProComm makes a mount. Call RightChannelRadios. They sell them but no web page for them yet so you'll have to call or email to get an invoice made for you. (They're working on that.)

    I put one of those Wilson mounts on my Cascadia but I struggled with getting the SWR down. A buddy and myself worked on it for a couple days trying different ground and bonding solutions and never had any luck

    Finally one morning he showed up and he had 102 inch stainless steel whip that he wanted to put on there just to see if we could get them down and sure enough they dropped to an acceptable level. I’ve been driving up and down the interstate to Michigan and back three times a week for well over two years talking on a stainless steel whip with a cobra and a stinger board inside

    This rm Italy stinger board was just added this past weekend. Boy people say I am really loud now

    Yeap..I tried a few antenna solutions on my cascadias...
    1st it was just the oredator 10k..So so results...Then same 10k on a weird riser that had built on mount,gettin better then a top loaded 5ft firestick,worse and found out about the 7ft skip shooters..With 2 bonding straps on my door hinge i got good analyzer #'s...Only cause i found out about someone else useing a 102" on a 10" riser so i tried that...Almost perfect across all 40 but im a bit of a stickler...Still tinkering to try and get perfect resonance and resistance but it may never come...

    As for your amp you surely increased your output by atleast 20 times so yeah your gonna be louder....Question is range and thats increased..

    I’m glad you posted that because the same buddy I was talking about had mentioned the 7 foot skip shooters and we had both wondered if that would work. I was getting ready to try that solution before he showed up with the stainless steel whip.

    I did break one mounting bracket about the first six months after I put the whip on the added strain of the large whip whipping forwards and backwards just couldn’t take it. I replaced the bracket with the same type bracket so far this one hasn’t broken yet.
