Had to find a good semi-permanent place to mountt the HAM antenna. This is the setup now and works real well for me. Its probably directionally impeded but I regularly pick up guys 10+ miles from me.
This is a closeup of the mount i got from Jon. I will treasure it forever. Thanks Jon. You can mount it to any flat edge and point the antenna in any direction. I had to spread it a little and get rid of the rubber ptotector to make it fit the thicker steel.
