    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:

I know there are ground plane kits out there for using certain mobile antenna's as a base set up, but my question is, what would be the best set up if you used a mag mount. Not looking to use it as my "main" antenna, but I came across Radio Shacks old 2 meter mag mount, and was thinking about mounting up on the tower just to see how it does. Any suggestions ? Thanks

I've temporarily used a mag mount with a cookie sheet before. I don't know how you would go about getting it onto a tower though.

Den, if you're going up the tower you may as well put a worthwhile 2M antenna up there and be done with it rather than fiddling around with junk.
