    I won some antennas for mobile use from eBay. Well I guess win might be an over statement since there are parts missing. The mount for the stinger is missing on four out of five antennas. I don't want to give the seller any grief over this, but it does make four out of five antennas useless. I just want to find these premade and chromed. I could make them but they would not be as pretty as store bought. I can do PayPal!
    Any help would be appreciated.

    I would venture to guess you can order them from MFJ, they look to be the same thing they use for the Ham-stick clone.

    I already called them and they are trying to see if they can get them. The antennas are made over seas.

    Google whip antenna ferrule. There are three different sizes for different size whips. They are an AS-1, AS-2, ans AS-3 ferrules. Lots of places sell them. They should all have a standard 3/8-24 thread on the bottom.

    That is the problem I was having. Stinger mount was what I first called it.

    Man you talk about lucky! I whined a little bit about missing parts to the seller and he started offering refunds, THE CAPTAIN find the name of the part I need, I call MFJ after placing the order for four of those, get offered a job, and get a refund for 1/2 cost of the parts. That's all I asked for was 1/2. I am considering the job, more money equals more TOYS!
