Yea- let me know if you find or know of a source.. I exhausted my supply. :) The SMA mounts are great (and probably a little less loss) but more expensive.

I actually did those videos on Ustream and moved just the three over. There is a number of others of which I might add one or two if I review them and find something that I should include.

We had a bunch from Larsen from years past that have been discontinued. I did try a couple from Ebay that looked like those including the one in an earlier picture I posted. They don't center in the hole well at all. Once they are installed they seem to hold in place and work ok but Im not sure about reliability. These need to be good for a minimum of 10 years of normal service.

My guess is we will continue to use the SMA models.

I'm only running 100W through one...haven't had an issue....slight discoloration due to damp environment but no performance issues...

I've installed ONE of the SMA variants..more because I was lazy...SMA gps input....Existing NMO GPS......just ran a patch cable to the input of the rx and worked fine...Got rid of that vehicle years ago rhough so I have no clue how it did.
