The antenna looks like an Amateur Radio application.

The part where the antenna screws on, looks like it is an NMO type mount although it could be a VHF Mount, not typical CB, but of course I have been wrong before and will again.

I will look at a couple of sites and get back...

Ltr

edit... sorry, I looked on a couple of the Amateur Sites and no go.

Maybe it is one of the Monkey Brands CB Mounts.

My other option is to fabricate a couple of brackets. My goal is one for the drivers side for my 2M antenna (NMO mount) and one on the passenger side for a CB antenna. Thanks

OK here's one...

How about a bracket across the top of the tire carrier, make it out of 1.5 or 2 inch angle, alum OK. Make it as wide as you need and run a support, make out of smaller angle, at an angle to the center of the carrier. That would give you a mounting location anywhere along the flat of the angle stock.

I just don't like mounting the antennas too low.

The distance between the antennas is not critical because of the freqs. but I kept mine as far apart as possible so they didn't couple.

My latest project will have the mount for the tri-band VHF, with fold over mount, mounted centered on the windshield frame, with the mount towards the rear, over the top. The CB antenna, a Wilson Flex-i-whip, will be centered on the tire carrier, both antennas as high as possible and flexible.

Anyway, I an going off the subject...

The mount in the pic is sweet and should work out great.

Luck,

Broke down and ordered a left and right hand bracket made by Tera, the CBM model. Thanks again for the help.
