Does anyone have any experience using the License plate mount from Lakeview products.  It looks like it my be the answer to my SUV mounting problem but from the ads and the "Short take" in QST it is difficult to really get a feel for how substantial it is and how it might work out in the real world.  I appreciate any comments/feedback.

Hi
I bought the Lakeview license plate mount in March and I can tell it is well made. If you follow the directions and make sure it is grounded well and it should preform. It is well made and sturdy.


Good Luck and 73,
Matt

I purchased the license plate mount in May 2000 and use it on my Buick Park Avenue. I use the Yaesu ATAS 100 antenna and it works great. It is very sturdy! Be sure to ground it good; I took a one inch braid directly to the car chassis.

What antenna are you using on the mount?  I assume they should work OK with a Hamstick since Lakeview sells the Hamstick.  I'm just wondering how well it will work with a Hustler antenna and 20M resonator.  Does the antenna sway side to side much as you are driving?

What I would like to know is what can be done to convert it for an NMO mount?  Are there any alternative license plate mounts that will handle an NMO mount?

Thanks,
Steve

Please advise if this mount will interfere with the dual doors on my new (used) 1985 GMC Suburban.  I'd  like to hear from other ops who have a 'Suburbo' and how they installed mobile 2-meter antennae.
