A new Montauk 170 with a bimini where would one mount an 8' antenna? I originally was planning on a handheld as the primary but i have now changed my mind. But the trade off might not be worth it if you can't mount a real antenna.

C... from other forum posts I have found the right side of the Console seems to be the best spot... That's where it seems I will put the Shakespere 6db 5225 or equivalent model with stainless mount!!! Put it several inches off the floor and pivot it backwards when not in use and the cover will still work... The radio needs to be about knee level off the floor on the right side of the console so there will not be any interference to the Compass... The Holy Cow

Use the Shakespear 3 Ft antenna (the fiberglass one) and mount it on the starboard side of the console. Works great .......if you have a radio on board you can also get a siginal splitter and connect it to your radio/cd player.

Spend a couple more bucks and get the Digital 528-VW. It's an awsome 4' antenna.

Sorry made an error......... Shakespeare antenna model 5400Xt is a 4 ft antenna. At any rate, it gives good reception
