    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.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Looks like a typical 'stud' mount. Several mounts use those type 'studs'. The one that comes to mind first is a 'ball-mount'. I kind'a doubt if that's what was used, but I think you get the idea.

Sorry, should have clarified! Depends on whether the whip you have is currently cut for 5/8 wave or 1/2 wave. How long is it?

According to my cutting chart, at 146 MHz, a 1/2 wave whip should be 40 1/8" long and for a 5/8 wave at the same frequency, it should be about 48" long.
