Hi everyone, I would like to hear from anyone who has fitted a Codan HF with an auto tune aerial to a Colorado dual cab. My Colorado has a ARB deluxe bar fitted on the front & a factory fitted tow bar. I cannot seem to find a spot for the self tuning antenna. I want to be legal so bearing in mind frontal vision & indicator positions. Thanks

What type of Codan self-tune antenna is it?

As a general rule, mounting on the front of the vehicle will generally not be compliant in most, if not all states, unless it is a low profile Codan 3050.

We have ours mounted on the rear of the vehicle...

Cheers, Baz-The Landy

Thanks Baz. I have it mounted on a plate on the rear door of my Pajero & it works a treat. I am pretty sure that mounting it on the front of the vehicle wouldn't work because it would obstruct forward vision. It is the thick short aerial not the broomstick type. I think a fold down type bracket on the rear "somewhere" I am just fishing for ideas,maybe someone has mounted an antenna on a dual cab with a canopy attached & maybe steer me in the right direction. Thanks for the reply Baz.

No problem, and not the same vehicle, but this is how we have outs mounted...might give some ideas.



Cheers, Baz

All I can see is a black square Landy. Do you want to try again? Thanks

Hey Baz,

Isn't that a Codan 3040 antenna and isn't it supposed to be installed with the whip fully above the roofline?

yes, it is 3040, not sure where I got 3050 from. It has the whip that attaches to the section I have on there. Possibly not optimal positioning but works okay.

Cheers, Baz

My 3040 is fitted to the top of the rear wheel carrier (about the same height as Baz's).

It was fitted by the radio mob who installed the radio.

I normally just run the stainless steel whip, but if I need better reception, I put the short fibreglass whip that you can see on the back of Baz's Latoya (never sure if it's called the Landy or Toyota LOL)

As a matter of interest, on a trip along the Anne Beadell last year, the whip went under a branch of a tree and came back with enough inertia and force to crack the solar panel on the roof.

Note to Baz – Take whip off when under trees!

Cheers, Baz

Hmm...Boyota?

I have made a bracket and fitted a Barrett Auto tune antenna to the rear of a dual cab rodeo with a canopy. You can open and close the rear window without interferring with the antenna.

I can send you a photo by email if this would assist .(please provide email )

On a previous vehicle with a lift up tailgate the antenna was mounted on an arm that had it close to the centre line when mobile and swiveled to the side when I needed to open the hatch.
