To me and this is just me having that one Antenna up on the Roof of your car at the position it is looks to be a little unsafe..

And if for some unseen reason it would get knocked off it may Damage Quit a bit of your Vehicle which as Radio Geek I would hate to see..

To pass on too ya there is a company that sells Great antenna's and accessories that I think would put your antenna's in position that is a little safer and will give you Great results while using your Radio.. here is the Company.

NCG company here is some links to look at. Hope this helps Bear780

I've always had an antenna on the roof like that even with my old car. The magnet on these diamonds are insane. Hopefully after the lease is up I will just drill holes and put nmo's in anyway, but thanks for the concern.
