I doubt a magnetic mount would work well for a 7' antenna... have you looked at the options Firestik offers? Here's a page that lists quite a few: http://www.pepperelectronics.com/aca...na_Mounts.html

Stop back and update us on what you decide to do, I'm looking at adding a radio in the spring (reading the exam manual now) and some of the ham antenna configurations for mobile use look pretty daunting. I've been toying with the idea of adding a cargo rack to my cap, I just may pull the trigger on that and use it as an antenna location as well.

Good luck!
