I will have to take a shot of the antenna mount as I do not seem to have any close ups
here is the firestik stake hole mount I used + a 6" spring
I put it on the passengers side since I am usually riding alone and the instructions advise that you mount it as far away from the operator & passangers as possible
the antenna does put out some strong radio waves
not sure if it matters since I usually have the mobile phone pasted to my ear and I suppose that is just as harmful
- again studies are inconclusive, but I do know remote phones were 3 watt and all hand helds are only .6 watt - and that was before digital existed
even hand held CB and marine band radios have to operate at lower power
manufacturers don't want us frying our brains and coming back to sue them...
