Has anyone here had any dealings with "MOUNT GUYS"? I am considering the purchase of a couple of their mobile mounts. Thanks,

Well, not. However, I have had experience with Lido and a couple of others who use spring-loaded clamps; they flat don't work for amateur radio, even when holding (?) just the head.

Lido does made a goose neck mount which attaches to a seat bolt, and they're okay as they use screws.

Think of things this way. If you're ever in an accident, what happens to that 3 pound brick as it bounces around the interior of your vehicle?

If you want some down to earth info on mounts, go to my web site.

DO not order from LIDO Mounts if you want to receive your mount in a timely manner.  I ordered a GPS motorcycle mount from them and it took over 3 weeks for me to receive the mount. I kept emailing them and finally threatened to have my CC reverse the charges.  They finally shipped the mount.

(Opinion Alert)

Give Ernie KG4YNI a shot. I have been in his shop and had a "backbone" support 150lb. Each is hand made by Ernie and can be customized to suit your needs. All of them are very high quality machined aluminum. I believe he will be set up at the Orlando Ham fest in a few weeks.
