Default CB antenna mounts

I did a search with no luck so I am making this thread.

If you have a CB radio can you post a picture or a link to what antenna mount you used.

Thanks

The simplest and least intrusive is an antenna with a 5" magnetic mount. I hate drilling holes and clamping brackets to painted surfaces. The antenna will not blow off or fall off either.

The one I have is made by Comet. Mine is for a dual band antenna but you can get the mount without a connector or coax.

I don't have a picture at the moment but I have a stake hole mount.

Solid and no drilling of the truck. Only had to drill a hole in the plastic stake hole cover to run the antenna out.

this is what I did - CB antenna is on a custom fabricated bracket and modified store bought mount, bolted on using a tail light bolt. Ground plane kind of sucks and it's too low, but it works reasonably well. Would be better mounted on the toolbox like the others, and probably will end up that way sooner or later.
