M type mount is used. This antenna is approximately 5.25 feet high. A duplex or triplexer, depending on radio, is required (not supplied).
If you are living in an apartment, townhouse or other location where you do not have space to install an antenna you might consider the ATAS-120 along with the optional ATBK-100 Antenna Base kit. This VHF/UHF counterpoise kit will get you on the air fast.
