6x6x Antenna mount for front guard
« on: November 15, 2017, 08:33:22 AM »
Looking for an antenna mount to fit on the front guard of our 6x6, four bolt fixing. Our plan is to use it as a base for either a hi-gain radio antenna or a UHF antenna, and I hope this is feasible?

If anybody has something suitable please PM me and we can discuss further.

Thanks, Hugh

Genuine ones have a bracket under the guard to stop the vibrations ripping the panel, make sure you get that too.

Bit of TIG work and the second is a pair of Racal HF mounts I found and adapted one for the uhf which is a smaller antenna
