I've encountered a problem which is probably my own fault for not understanding clearly some of the past posts.

Installed the Icom radio which was easy....

Went to install the Metz whip on the ratchet and bingo.. a mast head mount doesn't easily go onto a rachet, especially one with 1" 1 1/4" thread. Who has done this before or maybe nobody has with a metz and a rachet ?

Is there an adapter or should I go with a different antenna or build my own adapter? I was really hoping for a short whip mounted on the console handrail that folds down below the canvas....

Thanks in advance,

Item #6 for this Mini Gam Antenna may fit your Metz, similar antenna/application. Metz may also make an adaptor.
