I currently have a trunk mount antenna for my 2-meter radio on my Chevy Beretta.  I want to put an 11-meter SSB radio in my car also.  I know a lot of people that still use the Citizen Band and SSB, and I like to talk to the truckers on the interstate Smiley.  The question is where should I mount the second antenna?  I don't want to drill holes in the roof of my car or in the fenders.  I have a 3ft. firestik antenna I want to use.  I was thinking of getting a second trunk mount and placing it on the driver’s side of the trunk toward the middle.  A mag mount won't work with this antenna due to its ridged design.  Any ideas?

  KC0LOE,
go with the trunk mount. They are some of the strongest mounts that I've used
for 11m antennas.
Hope this helps,  Will, KD5QFL

Don't forget the 750 watt amplifier for the CB !!!!  {just kidding, I know they're illegal.}  I also would go for the trunk mount.
