Title: Radio slide mounts
Post by: KB9JXZ on August 02, 2010, 01:59:22 PM
 Does anybody know of a source of slide mounts for mobile radios ?  Everyone I have contacted says they are discontinued. (Hutton,Tessco,Gamber Johnson, ect. ) Done the extensive web search engines and anybody who has them online that I have called says they are discontinued.
 Maybe somebody with some new old stock?   Something like this  or even the cheaper cb type at this point.  I need several. Somebody has to have them.

 Any help would be most welcome.

 Thank you,

Commercial two way radio, as we have always known it, is all but dead! Along with that, slide mounts. You might try here:

They used to carry the Wilson slide mount line, and they might know what is still available, as they cater to the amateur, and the CB markets.

By far the best one, was made by Motorola. It was designed for their Micor-10 series, but adaptable to just about any radio. The mount even had a plug in coax connection, good to at least 800 MHz. Occasionally, you see one of these at a hamfest.

Good luck on your search.

Ebay has a number of them, BUT most look kinda Lite weight.

I just saw your post and thought I would let you know that I just listed a slide mount on Ebay that might interest you.
It's a commercial slide mount and I've been using one with my Alinco DR-600 for many years.
They originally were for commercial radios and cost about $125.00 as I remember. This an extra that I
no longer need. It's used but is still in excellent working order.
The item # is 130419040292
