How To Install A NMO Ham Radio Mobile Antenna Mount. Post 1720.

I've always been a bit over cautious when I use VHF/UHF antennas on my Honda van.  I really don't want to drill holes in the roof and disturb any cables or computers that monitor the performance of my van.  So, I tend to use magnetic mount VHF/UHF antennas--not the best solution, since these antennas tend to scratch metal surfaces and ruin the vehicle paint.  Glass-mounted antennas also present certain problems, especially with windows embedded with antennas and other control circuitry.

After I watched this video, I feel a bit more confident about installing a more secure and aesthetically pleasing mobile antenna.  Mel Wagner (WA5UTK) shows us how to install a NMO mobile mount on his 2009 Ford F-150 pickup truck.  He takes his time and proceeds carefully through each step of the installation process.
