    Default Antenna Polarization

    I've had my RX-65 mounted on my motorcycle handlebars over a year now and it's paid for itself a few times over.

    Now I'm looking to somehow permanently mount it so I don't have to worry about removing it when I'm off the bike in a strange location and for stealth reasons when stopped by a LEO.

    My first thought is to attach a box to the side of my trunk but this would require me to mount the unit vertically, i.e. turned 90 degrees axially to sit next to the trunk without sticking out.

    Will this work from a standpoint of antenna sensitivity or am I stuck trying to find a place to mount it in it's standard configuration?

    This will work just fine:

    Thanks Jim. :wink:
