IMPORTANT NOTICE!!!

GEOTOOL SERVICES HAVE BEEN ON HOLD FOR THE PAST FEW MONTHS DUE TO MULTIPLE FAMILY ILLNESSES........

 

This product is manufactured ad distributed solely by WA6JKH, and now it is time to be a better family member than antenna mount company.
I will return to making mounts in the future, but for now I can only work on a part time basis, if that. I have run out of mounts that fit Full size Ford, Dodge, and recent Toyota Trucks. I have mounts that will fit Full Size and Pre-2000 Chevrolet and GMC pickups, as well as Mazda and Ford Ranger. I will offer discounts to those who have contacted me since January 1, 2014.

 

If you would be interested in purchasing the antenna mount portion of GeoTool, there may be a time when I would consider selling the company. Contact me via email to rickc@geotool.com.

SCREWDRIVER ANTENNA MOUNTS!

the STRONGEST YOU CAN BUY!!
Places your antenna up high where it
will radiate most effectively.

 

 

GeoTool makes the PERFECT mount for Little Tarheel II, Tarheel Model 75A "Stubby", HI-Q  Hi-Sierra Sidekick, MFJ-1662, and any other Screwdriver Antenna utilizing a 3/8"-24 single point mount system. The strong, clean design of the ISM-1 Screwdriver Antenna Mount is shown above, with a 3/8"-24 mounting bolt. Simply screw your antenna onto the mount, and plug in the control line. Your coax attaches inside the mount using the same solderless connectors as our other HF mounts.  This really is the strongest, and best grounded mount for this purpose.  It puts the antenna up where the whole length will radiate.  Click here for installation instructions and more photos.

DELRIN ANTENNA INSULATOR
AVAILABLE IN BLACK ONLY!
For Mobile or Fixed Antenna Installations
 
FOR USE WITH ICOM, KENWOOD, ALINCO or OTHER
RADIO WITH ANY MOBILE ANTENNA COUPLER DESIGNED FOR OUTDOOR MOUNTING (I.E. ICOM, SGC, MFJ, ETC.)


Download Here - Insulator Instructions and Diagram (pdf)

Standard 1.5"X3.0" or 2.0"x4.0" Insulator Features:

               Excellent RF isolation and low base capacitance (tune up on lower freqs.)

               Can also be attached to a metal or wood support for fixed location use.

               The 1.5"x3.0" insulator has one stainless steel 3/8"-24 threaded inserts on each end for long thread life. 3/8"-24 fittings screw into steel, not Delrin.

               The larger, Heavy Duty Delrin Insulator (2.0"x4.0") has two threaded inserts in each end, and a 2" long threaded stud installed.

               All Stainless Steel hardware for minimum maintenance.

               Includes light duty coupling nut with 1/2" flutes (use with 102" stainless steel antennas, fiberglass CB whip antennas, and even Hustler style antennas).

               Heavy duty coupling nut, as shown in photo on left, above - add $6.00.

               3/32" brass or stainless steel hot lead is also available - add $3.49.

               Stainless steel 1.5" diameter base support washer.

               3/8" solderless connector included for initial setup and testing. Copper, brass or stainless steel wire is recommended for permanent connections.

               Insulators are modeled after a design presented in QST by AA4PB

               Works great with Radio Shack stainless steel CB Whip (available for about $20.00.) Can also be used with coil loaded antennas, such as Hustler, etc. Not recommended for fiberglass antennas with thin wire conductors. High currents on can cause small antenna wire inside the fiberglass to melt.

               I highly recommend the AA4PB Tuner Controller Interface for use with Icom and Alinco Radios and SGC Antenna Couplers.  I've used one for many years, and highly recommend it. It works great!

MOUNT SELECTION CHART

The chart below shows the approximate dimensions of our mounts. Be sure to include the measurements of your stake pocket in your order. All mounts are slightly smaller than the stake pocket on purpose, and a snug fit is obtained by shimming the top of the mount with plastic electrical tape. This avoids the problem of oversize mounts caused by variations in the manufacturing of the trucks.

When you order, please list the stake pocket dimensions, particularly the depth, and the make, model and year of your truck..... That's all I need to fit you with the correct mount.

Mount prices have changed due to increases in the price of parts and labor. Prices now also reflect the amount of aluminum in the mount and the amount of time spent machining. The prices for each mount are shown below.

To see if our mounts will fit your truck, refer to the chart below.

ALL MOUNT TYPES ARE CURRENTLY IN STOCK

(Green = Available Mounts - Orange = In Production - Blue = Awaiting Parts)


*
  Top dimensions

**All VHF mounts are 5.75 INCHES long. Anchor bolt spacers (stainless steel washers, or Schedule 80 Aluminum tubing + washers) are provided with all mounts to align the top even with the top of the bed rail.  Because pocket depths vary, it is important to tell me the depth as accurately as you can.  The top dimensions almost always fit, but it is a good idea to send them along too.

 

***Tundra mounts only - The inside portion of the Pre-2006 Tundra mount is 1.5x2.1 inches, the inside is offset flush with either the inside or outside of the top opening. Check your stake pocket and you will see the narrower bottom portion.  The 'H' model fits these trucks

 

Shipping:  $5.00 for 1 to 2 mounts
    $9.00 for two to four mounts

All mounts are shipped via USPS Priority Mail

Other Ordering Information

 

Use the mount block dimension chart above see which mount fits your truck. Be sure to check the stake pockets on your truck for not only size, but for the internal brackets that our mounts attach to. Some new trucks do not have an internal bracket. The only ones I know of right now are the 2010 and 2011 crew cab Fords with the Short (5.5') bed. The long bed version still has internal brackets. Scroll down to read more about this problem. It may be possible to use our mounts with these trucks, but some modification to the bed rail cap, and additional parts for mounting, will be required.

 

When you order, send the information I need:


1. The Make and Model of your truck

2. The Depth of the stake pocket measured from the top of the bed rail

3. The Length of bed

4. The Type of Antenna(s) you will be using,

5. Your Email Address.


You can pay using a check, PayPal, or a credit card (through the PayPal system).

 

If you want to use a credit card, will then send you a Money Request through PayPal. You will receive an email with a link to PayPal for your purchase.

NOTICES
April, 2013

2010 and 2011 Ford Short (5.5ft long) Bed

Ford did not include the inner stake pocket brackets on these trucks. This also affects most of the new 'Sporty' looking F-150's. These trucks have a solid plastic bed-rail cap, with no removable covers where the stake pocket 'should' be. The cap is installed with plastic or metal clips, which go into square holes all along the top of the bed rail. A good picture of the situation is shown on this web site:

 

http://www.fordf150.net/photos/f150-stuff/p46250-stake-pockets.html

 

As you can see from the link above, the truck does have stake holes in the top of the bed rail. I am working on a method to install our mounts in the rear pockets on these trucks. The system will only work on the rear pockets.

 

Fortunately the long bed (Fleet Style) versions of the Ford trucks has the standard stake pockets that fit our mounts, and they do have brackets installed to hold our mounts. Be sure to buy a truck with internal brackets to hold our mounts.
