adjustable through hole nmo mount?
I was wondering if there are any comercially available through hole nmo mounts that do not need to be on a level surface to have the antenna straight. I have a nice comet csb-750a 2m/440 antenna, currently on a crappy (but not cheap) lip mount (diamond k600s) on the hood of my truck. I want to switch to a through-hole nmo mount also on the side of the hood, but then the antenna would be crooked as the hood has a slight pitch. The lip mount is leftover from my last vehicle, where it was on a fiberglass trunk. In my opinion no antenna mount is sleeker than a drilled nmo mount (and great ground plane in the middle of a metal roof or hood!). I cannot mount this antenna on my roof for a few reasons, too expensive of an antenna to break off on a tree branch, and proximity to other antennas on the vehicle. So what should i do?, I am more than willing to drill holes, which should un-complicate matters.....
