Greetings All,

First time on here so go easy...lol

I have a D2 that im sorting out to go gout and about in. Im looking at getting the following as a set up.
Albrecht AE-6110 Multi - Nice and slim and should just about fit above the sun visor so out of sight.

I was going to marry that to a Orbitor HD with a HD mount.

The question is would it be better to mount it on the front of the roof rack behind the raised bar as below with a HD mount? Its going to take a pounding from low trees and the like so would rather try and get it right first time.

hi would mount on the roof rack ans remember that the orbiter does not work well up against metal as it would put the swr really high so keep it in the clear

No Worries,

was going to mount it on a metal plate and fix it to the mesh about a foot back from the front

Cheers
