Buy it from Salty John and you get the adaptor free!
When you buy a Metz from us please specify that it's for a RIB or you intend to fit it to an existing bracket. We'll make sure it has the long continuously threaded connector in the base. The standard antenna has a discontinuously threaded connector which is designed for use with the supplied 'L' bracket.
The long connector is a standard item available from vhf parts suppliers and helps you to fit antennas of the Metz type, with a base coil and PL259 connection, through the A frame, cabin top, or through existing thicker plastic or alloy brackets with enough remaining thread to give a secure fit.
