"UHAM" Universal Fit HF Mounts

Please note (Aug. 2012): These have been discontinued as "standard" products once current stock (a couple left) is sold out. However, they can still be special ordered at a higher cost. For more information on this please read DISCONTINUTED PRODUCTS . To inquire if any are left please CONTACT DICK .

Universal fit adjustable dual support mounts for "any brand" of HF screwdriver and motorized antennas with a base diameter up to 2 inches. The "UHAMs" are 2 inches wide with a 3/4" antenna mounting hole. Available in buffed aluminum or powder coated finishes.

  • UHAM-150: horizontal surface mount, such as bumper/trailer hitch; has a 1" hole for bolting to your location .
  • UHAM-200: vertical surface mount, such as truck bed wall, tool box and several of our brackets; includes two 3/8" bolts for mounting. 

These are the "gold standard" mounts for medium sized HF motorized / screwdriver antennas.

Both models (UHAM-150 and UHAM-200) have the following features:

  • UNIVERSAL  - fit ANY BRAND of antenna that: (1) has a base diameter up to 2-1/8 inches, (2) has an area 2 inches long that is clear of obstructions (bolt heads, wires) approx. 5 to 9 inches (mount is adjustable up-down) above the base of the antenna, and (3) takes a 3/8x24 stud at the base of the antenna. THIS INCLUDES:
    • Hi Q (models 2.5/80 to 4/80 to 5/160, that use 2.0" insulating wafers - will NOT fit the "ruggedized" models" that use 2.5" wafers)
    • High Sierra, Tarheel (full sized models)
    • other brands of screwdriver antennas that meet three three requirements listed above.
  • HEAVY-DUTY - 3/4" thick bottom section and heavy-duty weld with stainless steel hardware that supports the antenna at two places - the base and about 8 inches about the base with a heavy duty stainless steel V-clamp.
  • ADJUSTABLE - allows for up-down and forward-back adjustments to best fit your antenna.
  • HEAVY DUTY ANTENNA INSULATION - we provide heavy duty, abrasion resistant, water proof insulation that is thicker than what is used on some other brand mounts around the upper support around the antenna mount. We selected EDPM as this is semi-soft and therefore provides a secure "grip" for the V-clamp, as opposed to hard plastics which would be "slippery" to the V-clamp.
  • SLEEK LOOKING DESIGN - sleek appearance that can be seen in our photos, whether in buffed bare aluminum or any of our powder coated finishes.
  • QUICK REMOVAL & "LAYBACK" DESIGN - if you use a quick disconnect (not provided) you can install or remove your antenna in about 20 seconds yet there are no hinges or pins to rattle and potentially affect your SWR. If your antenna is mounted to the back of your vehicle the base of the antenna can rest in the V-clamp at about a 45 degree angle to get into your trunk, in about 20 seconds. Check out our PHOTO GALLERY and VIDEO GALLERY (video illustrates the layback and quick removal features).

Why buy another mount just becasue you decide to buy another antenna? You can spend $100 to over $200 for "other brand" mounts that are designed to only fit their antennas. If you buy the UHAM mount it can fit your future antennas - the UHAM is the mount you can keep!

Your coax is connected to the bottom of the mount via either of the following methods:

  • Direct connection of your coax without a PL-259 plug to the UHAM ground bolt and your bolt that attaches the bottom of your antenna, via the PROVIDED solder lug kit (kit includes two solder lugs heat shrink tubing for RG58 size coaxial cable, shown in photos below). This is shown below in a photo.  -OR-
  • Plug in your coax with a PL-259 connector to the OPIONAL super-heavy duty SO239 antenna mounting systems ("SHD SO239, SHD-SO239-LA2.0 " antenna bases). 

All parts are stainless steel, and Type 6061 aluminum or cast aluminum - top quality materials. The INCLUDED insulation kit includes a 2 inch wide by 18 inch long piece of 3/16" thick EDPM rubber and 5 (five) UV (sunlight) resistant tie stips (use 4, 1 extra "just in case" you loose one). This is shown in the photos below and is enough for your ANY BRAND antenna.

Our PRODUCT GUIDE lists all of our products, where they can be used and what types of antennas they fit. You may find that our PRICE LIST  is handy if you would like a quick view of all of our product costs, including accessories, options and parts.

UHAM-150: Bumper / Trailer Hitch "Horizontal" Mount

The UHAM-150 bolts to horizontal surfaces, such as a bumper or trailer hitch, via a 1" hole. You can use a 5/8" to 1" bolt or trailer hitch ball (with the appropriate flat washers and lock washer) to fasten the UHAM. It will fit "any brand" of HF screwdriver or motorized antenna that has a base diameter up to 2-1/8", as it is uniquely adjustable fore and aft, and the V-clamp can be moved up and down. If your antenna has a quick disconnect at the base, you can remove or "tilt back" the antenna in about 20 seconds (illustrated in our videos).
