I bought an Antenna Specialist 2 mtr antenna many,many years ago [around 1996 or 97] It's a somewhat thin long grey coil on a 40'ish inch whip I was on a fender mount but the mount is corroded way to much. [It looks like the old type Public Safety antennas from the 80's and 90's] The base is not NMO and I'm looking for a new base for it but for the life of me cannot remember what they are called ANYONE out here know what I'm talking about?



It looks like this one only not for 27 mhz. BUT for 138-174 mhz

The base of that AS antenna -is- an SO-239 type connector, or at least a 'female' part of one. No idea what that type of connector is called. I do remember them though, wish I had the one I used to have. Oh well...

Well I guess I threw out all my A/S catalogs so I don't know the nomenclture for that antenna and mount. But I've installed hundreds of them including many on my personal cars. I "probably" have a few in junk boxes somewhere. I stll have the antennas. They had a cowl mount (which I mostly used) and a snap-in mount and a few other variations.

If there are any old time radio shops around they might have some in thier junk boxes also. Good luck. I've been using NMO for quite a few years. :)

Your antenna is likely an A/S ASP-177 for that freq range. It's not for a SO-239 mount.

That threaded screw on the top of the coil is for a spring. It would then be an ASPS-177. S for Spring.

Thanks folks. I talked to my Elmer up in Maine[he runs a radio shop] and he explained [after seeing the photo's] that the center unscrews and a long rod with a spring slides in and scews to a mount [or adapter]

Just got off the phone with my Elmer. It's a Antenna Specialist K27 Motorola Mount Conversion Kit [YAAAA]

He's got one and will be shipping it to me in a few days. [I feel better already. [lol]]
