  1. Hello, I'm running the following equipment: MXT275 MXTA26 on a tunk lip mount. I drive a small car (Honda Fit) and am not too keen on making any holes. I have had magnetic bases in the past which have worked wonderfully.. but unless you're more attentive than I am.. after time you start getting "wear" marks on your roof.. or worse, rust if your not careful. Because of that, I thought I'd try the trunk lip mount. It seems to work fine.. but I'm curious if there are any negative consequences to how it's angled. The only place I can seem to fit it on my hatch is towards the side, so it angles to one side of the vehicle or the other. I can't put it in the middle because it will hit the roof when I open the hatch. I could also put it in the front on the hood, but it would do the same thing (but he lower). Does anyone have any input on antenna placement like this? What are some other options (including a magnetic mount) that might be better.. and potentially how much better? For instance if a mag mount in the center of my roof would work 10x better I might try it.. but if it may only marginally approve, I might not.
