I have been using hamsticks for almost a year. (Well, I have several actual "Hamsticks" and a few that are "look-alike hamsticks), and I can't say anything bad about them. I have used them as a base station antenna and as a mobile antenna attached to a quick disconnect on a mirror mount type of assembly.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I have not used them as a rotatable dipole as some folks have, but I have talked to guys and gals that were using them as dipoles and they claimed they were great.
As for the license plate mount of which you mentioned, I'm not familiar with that.
If you'd like to see how I have mine setup as a base station antenna and how I've attached the mount to a support post for an aluminum cover over my rear porch/redwood deck, you can e-mail me at my e-mail address below and give me your direct address and I'll send you a photo of how I have it attached. The antenna looks at the aluminum cover over my deck as a roof of a huge vehicle and as a result, the ground plane is great.

Any of y'all had any experience with the Hamstick antenna? And any comments
about their "license plate" mount or the dipole mount?
