Depending on the circumstances, there are times it is required that I remove my antenna from the mount, and I got tired of just placing it on the floor behind the seats in my pick-up. There also was the chance that the coil assembly get damaged due to my placing other items on top of it. Also, it became a pain to dig it out from beneath all the other things, like my camera equipment piled on top of it.
I finally decided that I had to do something to address the problem, and came up with the solution shown here. Not visible in the photo, is a mount on the floor for the coil assembly to fasten too, and the top of the coil is locked in place against the upper cab. So, there you have it, its not only out of harms way, but it cleaned up the area behind the seat nicely, and besides, it looks much better, mounted out of the way when not in use.
