Thanks for the advice on my previous post.  I decided to go with the AH-4 and initially a 102" whip.

Next question: Where can I find the best mount for the whip?  I'd like to mount it through my hitch receiver, or the ball mount.  I am planning to secure the tuner to the bumper so as to minimize the length of connection to the whip.  

I need to go this rout so as to not create a "permanent" installation.  Some parts, such as grounding straps will be permanently mounted to the vehicle and attached to the tuner and antenna as required.

I just need some leads on the best whip mount possible.

73!

However you mount the whip and AH-4, just make sure the lead is SHORT! Do not use coax for the jumper. Ordinary #12 wire is fine. Use a little silicon grease on the wire grip fittings to seal out moisture. You should also use a small choke to DC ground the ehip just in case you hit an overhead wire.
