Hi,

I just bought a Sirio performer 5000. Didn't come with a mount

Any of you guys know what mount I should use for roof top mounting? no magnets.

Thanks in advance

If you have the most common version that requires an SO-239 mount...

https://www.sirio.store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_88&products_id=397

Here is an Amazon link to the mount by it self.

... or not, the forum is trying to insert an amazon link as a media file??? Odd.

Anyway, as it shows in the link above, the model number is SG/AC-U SO-239, search for that and you should find it.

Some companies on the ham radio side make SO-239 mounts as well, such as this trunk mount from Diamond.

https://www.diamondantenna.net/k400s.html

If you get a trunk mount you should make sure you get a heavy duty version.

In a pinch the Wilson mounts for the 1000/5000 series antennas should work as well as those antennas have the same type of plug.

If you have the version that has the standard 3/8 in stud, there are many more options available.

I have that antenna on two of my vehicles with the mag. Thinking about drilling the hole on one of them. I have been looking at this one:


I think it is the correct mount, but it looks like it is missing something?
