Trying to find a suitable point to mount the autotune but have to rule out the usual towbar scenario as this interferes with the weight distribution hitch when towing a van!

I cannot mount on front of vehicle due to road rules in South Australia and also provides little protection form animal and bird strikes.

So if you know of anything or an engineering firm in Adealide who might be able to design and build a solution let me know.

Thanks in anticipation.

Electric Bug in Torrens Rd is a good start they sell and fit many HF radios and probably able to help.

Whilst acknowledging your question relates specifically to the Codan 9350, have you considered the Codan 3040, a much more compact auto tune antenna that seems to outperform the other in any case.

I have one mounted low on the bulbar where a winch would normally be fitted.

Thanks Ross M and Landy I visited Electic Bug as suggested by Ross and while they didn't have anything in stock they did have a reference libary of photograghs to view from and I found just the thing mounted on what i think was Nissan patrol - it even was hinged to allow the opening of the tailgate on the vehilce and looked very sturdy.

Despite my contact with Trek Tech they have either missed my email or are just not interested so have sent another reminder just in case.

the range of photograghs and names of companies associated with making custom made mounts is quite surprising so at the visit to EB was fruitful now I just need to await TT getting back to me.

Landy I already have the 9350 so did not want to go to the newer style antenna due to the cost and I don't think it is currently as proven as the 9350 series.

No problem, understand and I suspected that would be the case.

Although, in terms of performance the 3040 is superior and we have had no problems with our.

Codan indicate the 3040 tunes twice as fast as the 9350, a memory tune 12 times as fast, 70% smaller in height, half the weight and is designed to military standards.

Not trying to sell it to you, but it is a better antenna that gives more mounting flexibility.

Cheers...
