HD-5 3/8-24 Mobile Antenna Adjustable Lip Mounts
Mobile Antenna Mounting Location
Comet HD-5 3/8-24 Mobile Antenna Mounts are heavy-duty lip mounts that feature a 3/8-24 threaded socket to accept your small screwdriver type, helically-wound whips, mono-band collinear antennas, and other 3/8-24 stud mount antennas.
These mounts adjust in three planes, provide a quality appearance, and include a soft rubber pad to protect your vehicle's paint. They include four set screws that hold the mounts firmly in place.
Power specs for Comet HD-5 3/8-24 mobile lip mounts:
* HF: 100 W
* VHF: 75 W FM
* UHF: 50 W FM
These universal adjustable Comet mounts include over 16 ft. of low-loss coax, with the first 18 in. being mini coax for easier entry through weather seal. The use of mini coax reduces power handling but keeps it well within the common power ranges for mobile transceivers.
A note about Comet coax:
"The mini coax is neither RG-188 nor RG-174… it is actually 1.5D-QEFV Japanese coax. Comet states it is 'RG-174 type' coax because they have similar loss and diameter specifications. Initially RG-188 was used in comparison but was changed to the RG-174 comparison because they are more similar. The balance of the coax is Japanese 3.5D-QEFV. There is no 'RG' equivalent to 3.5D-QEFV. RG-58 connectors will not fit the 3.5D-QEFV coax, the Comet coax has a larger outside diameter and a larger central core and has about 30 percent less loss than RG-58. All of the coax cables produced by Comet use the Comet (Japanese) low loss coax. Mick Stwertnik - NCG Company"
