We have a Wilson's Cellular tri-band antenna and our idea was to replace the CB Radio antenna with the cellphone antenna.

But the Wilson's antenna has a NMO Mount and and the CB Radio screws onto a 3/8 inch bolt. We need to find some kind of adapter and haven't yet. Has anyone solved this problem?

Has anyone mounted such an antenna on their Alpine Coach? What did you do?

Thanks!

Audrey

Mounted mine behind the CB antenna through the roof into the TV cabnet. instructions say OK to mount some distance from other antenna. As a note I do not use the CB antenna.

You might check with this guy. His site shows photos of how he mounted a Wilson antenna on his Winnebago.

Arrrgggh! We don't want to drill through the roof!

Well, when we have time (we never seem to have any), we'll try to figure out how to reuse the CB antenna mount and wiring.
