    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

has anyone had any experiacne with mounting an antenna (for uhf/vhf and another for cb) on a Honda Element...i'm not sure i want to drill, but a trunk or hood lip would work. Does anyone have any advice on what i should do, especially an Element, or anything similar?

thanks!

My solution for that is to first uninstall the Honda, then start looking for a suitable antenna mounting location made of steel, such as a VW or a Chevy Impala. However, if you insist on using the Honda you may want to consider using a L bracket on the hood for the CB and drilling a hole in the roof for V/UHF. Be sure to run a ground strap to any hinged sections of the vehical such as doors and hoods since a lot of these cars use plastic spacers in the hinges.
