Abstract

Standard Mobile Antenna installations require a three quarter of an inch hole drilled in the roof of a vehicle to per- manently mount a two-way radio antenna. Many of these vehicles have elaborate, customized interiors that must be removed to route the cables. In doing so, a great deal oftime is spent and the potential to damage the integrated uphol- stery is great. Additionally, a large subset of this market lease their trucks and are contractually forbidden from drilling any holes through to the interior of the vehicle.
