Need advice for an upgrade....
I currently run a rat shack mag mount on my roof, every time I pull in the garage it obviously gets knocked over. I'd like to upgrade but I'm not very knowledgable in this area. I monitor public safety freqs in the 150-165, 400-460 and 500-501 range using a RS pro-2096. I don't care about the height, it can be tall or short, either is fine with me, although I assume taller means farther reception? If that is true than I would want a taller one. I am fine with a permanent mount on the roof (pickup truck - no trunk). I know my RS mag mount is not very flexible, but I'm not sure about the others, would I need to mount a spring between the whip and the base? I'm also afraid if I did have a flexible whip on the roof, when I pull in the garage it will be too close to the mount and snap off. There is only about 12" or so between my roof and the garage door when I pull in. I could mount it on the lip of the pickup bed if the 12" will be an issue.
Any ideas or suggestions would really be appreciated. Thanks!!!
