    Man they sure have that ad labeled wrong. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Yes the coax is connected to the center stud on that type of mount. Actually, the center conductor of the coax goes to the center stud and the shield goes to one of the 3 mounting screws. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    yep. Coax has a center wire (sometimes solid sometimes twisted wires) then a shield (braided wire)

    The Center goes to the antenna itself and the shield goes to the ground (or in this case the vehicle body)

    haha, imagine the looks i got when i drove through the mcdonalds drivethru backwards - with my 102" whip up. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    i havent had any problems with my whip hitting things - its a spring mount, so who cares if it hits something? i dont get how people can bend these whips... /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
