Well, I just received my FT-8900R, and now I am looking for a good mobile antenna. Since I'm still a no-code tech, I don't really need a quad-band antenna. Therefore, I've looked at a lot of tribanders, and I think I am settling on either the Comet SB-14 or SB-15. At any rate, I will likely be doing a permanent roof mount with this antenna. Are there any 'how-to's out there on the net? I've done google searches, but haven't really come up with much. I mean, those two particular antennas are UHF connectors... How do I support the antenna? etc etc etc...
Also, this antenna will be the fourth that I have on my car ('95 Pontiac Bonneville). I currently have a CB antenna, a Larsen NMO Dual-bander, and a Radio Shack scanner antenna (which is also a low-power dual-bander). All of these are magnet mounts... How much of a problem am I going to run in to regarding the four antennas? I really don't transmit too much, as I mainly use my radios for receiving. I will probably keep the CB and scanner antenna's on the trunk, but try to bring the Larsen dual-bander up to the roof with the tribander... Do I really need to worry about blowing my FT-8000R (which is on the Larsen now) when I xmit on the tribander / FT-8900R? I've heard some say that I will blow radios on surrounding antennas, but I've also heard that radios today are built well enough such that this is not a problem. Thanks!
