    i found this little doozy. seems like a compact yet capable unit.

    and another similar offering from cobra for a tad more.

    In the past, I haven't been into these so I need help. I also saw a vid of guy on his Ham (sp?) mounted in his jeep. do they do similar stuff?

    I know some of you wear the foil hat and talk to ppl in space so let me have it!

    Does anyone know if this one with a mag mount external would work for two different vehicles as far as the length/SWR.. The reason I ask is, am thinking about buying this one and running it in my truck with a mag mount, as was thinking if it'd be possible to pull the same mag mount ant. off the truck and put it on the Jeep of the trails, or would they most likely need two different lengths to the ant. due to the difference in roof size??

    There would likely be some difference, but honestly you would probably be ok.

    The biggest problem with antenna setups is the mount having a good contact with the body. This is typically was causes the very high SWRs that can hurt your radio. You really can't make a mag mount have any better contact with the body than is has. Your SWR will change but probably not high enough to hurt the radio, wouldn't hurt to check it though just to be safe.

    Yeah that is is pretty much what I was thinking as far as swapping the setup between vehicles... I mean if I can find a good enough deal, I'll just pickup an ant. for the truck and for the Jeep...
