There are a few places online that sell a fender mount specifically for Ford vans, with the correct hood slope angle. I got mine on Amazon last year: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000WD3MHI/ref ... 1_ST1_dp_1.

This also appears to be the same thing: http://www.rightchannelradios.com/unive ... mount.html
Those are the type that I got my idea from.

Re: HAM/Cb antennae mounting

I have a similar driver's side fender channel mount for my 2m/70cm antenna. I used the "Universal NMO Ant Mt" (part UN-ANTPF) from Pro-Fit International.

Re: HAM/Cb antennae mounting

I'll get a photo of my setup soon.

Just remember GROUND PLANE. Our vans have an exceptional platform for radios and tearing antennas off in drive throughs.

Re: HAM/Cb antennae mounting

Everyone has different mounts and setup but here is mine.



Oh year ground bolt is what is in front and don't forget to check your swr meter. The lift from ujoint on my rig had me cutting another couple of cm off to find that .8 tune.

Re: HAM/Cb antennae mounting

ProfessorPaddle, is that a Breedlove Fold Over Mount?

Re: HAM/Cb antennae mounting

Indeed it is. Only thing around that can clear a 10k predator with proper clearance and hardware.
