This a pic of my A-Frame.
Was going to try mount it to the left of the white stern light, you can just see whats left of the old antenna.
Any other suggestions people?

Why don't you just discard the Vtronics bracket and mount the antenna through the plate where the remaine of the old one is?

Yeah, you'll need a 16mm drill if the old antenna is (was?) a "standard" whip. But looking at that frame I'd just drill the hole to suit the raider & bung it straight in. If you're lucky the original cabling will be there and save you the hassle of pulling cables ......

Unless of course you need it to fold to go through doors, in which case see previous post!

Ye i'll just put it in the old space. The end or base of old antenna is still there and the cable connected to it so can put the new one in the old hole and connect old cable to it besides feeding new one through the A-Frame.
