>>>The parking garage at Bellevue Square in Bellevue, Washington has a height limit of 6 feet, 6 inches.<<<

OK, I was at Bellevue Square yesterday and the parking garage height limit is 6 feet 10 inches, not six feet 6 inches.  So, there is another 4 inches to play footloose and free.  However, my truck still just barely clears that height and I still have to take down my antenna when I go to park there.

Is Geotool still in business? I have been trying to contact them for over a month.   Alan KG4WOA

N4CDB:

Hey. Thank you for posting the pictures..!!!

I like the idea of your bracket and seems easy to build.

Any purpose of having the antenna in the rear side of the bed truck...Huh

I'll like to mount it in the middle of the front bed but it will next to the rear window but I'm not sure about how much RFI exposure the ocasionnal passenger in the rear cab will receive. I'm driving a Dodge RAM 2500 SLT (extended cab)

Convenience, really. The bed rail has preexisting holes so I just used one to run a bolt through the mount. Also, since the rail folds over into the bed it made it nice for concealing/protecting the cable.

I haven't noticed any problems with it located on the rear of the bed. I consistently get great signal reports so I'd say it works well for me.
