Hi Guys,

Not sure if anyone is interested, but was trying to work out the best way to mount a UHF antenna at the rear of my 2017 Outback.

After lots of drawing's, I finally worked out an end result and had it properly drawn up and laser cut in stainless steel.

Very happy with the result. Let me know what you think.

Cheers,
Pete

That looks really nice. But is an exterior antenna really necessary? I've just used the rubber duck on my handheld for years. Naturally, a non-handheld needs an antenna. So forget my question. :D

Nice job on the mount. Mine is less elegant. I used some 2 in. x 16 ga. material salvaged from the grand daughter's old swing set. Mounted used the fasteners for the cargo tie-downs. Since the tie-down is not grounded I ran a ground wire to the lift gate gas spring mount. Primary use is for my HT if more range is wanted.

That is a sweet mount.... I wonder if it's big enough to accept a Larson NMO mount for my 2/70 dual band antenna?? as the NMO base needs a 3/4 in hole...………………..
Thanks...

Should be fine. would just need to increase the hole using a step drill bit.

I can get more of these made up. to keep the cost at $30 Australian plus postage, I would need to order ten units. The first one has cost me $88.00 with CAD drawings and design etc.
Would you share/sell the CAD drawings?
