Thank you.

Was planning on the 6db going on the driver's side hood edge similar to ICUGAZN location. Balance out the look with the radio antenna on passenger side. If it gets to hitting the A pillar while wheeling, I'll switch out to the ghost in the same location.

I just ordered the 6db antenna as well. I want to test them both. I'm guessing the 6db will have better range and clearity?

I ordered both when I got the GMRS. Plan all along was to mount in the same location you did. Prefer the look of the whip, but for wheeling in the woods, the ghost may be more practical.

I have a question, and maybe it is dumb. Can an antenna be mounted sideways or does it have to be vertical? Like if I had a magnet mount antenna (ghost antenna) and stuck it on the rear roll bar on the inside of the vehicle. Out of the way of the soft top and stuff in the cargo area? Just brain storming, since a GMRS radio I plan on getting will only be installed when on wheeling trips, not everyday.

FYI, incase anyone is interested, I just uploaded my install of the MXT275 on YouTube.
