Now it depends, did you get a mirror mount type? Or a drill type mount?
I haven't bought a mount yet. Wasn't sure the best type to go with. Only thing my package says about mounting is: "stud mount and/or accessory must have a minimum installed thread depth of 0.550" (16mm)"
As for cable it says: "We recommend that you use 18ft coaxial cable between the radio and antenna installations. For single antenna installations use 50 ohm (RG-58A/U, RG-8X) coax. For dual or co-phase installations, use 72-75 ohm RG-59A/U coax"
Yes it is 3/8" - 24 thread. The link to the Item is MOBILE SCANNER ANTENNAS
I do also want to run a CB, and mount the Antenna for that on the passenger side of the vehicle. Or in the future run 2 scanners, one digital and one analog.
