two NMO trunk-lid mounts. driver side is for the BMAXSCAN1000, passenger side is for the MLB2700. bought the NMO caps separately on ebay.
the MLB2700 bent out of shape when the garage door opens.. . and the BMAXSCAN1000 really is a small antenna
and how it looks from the front. they'll be bent straight up once i figure out my tuning issue below.
on the MLB2700, i am getting an SWR over 3:1 on all channels, but i am not pegging the meter. all research seems to tend towards a bad ground. does this reference RF ground, or DC ground? will a DC ground antenna help solve the problem, and does a DC ground antenna require a separate grounding strap?
