I’m looking into how I should go about outfitting the Bajaab with a CB radio, and have already read up on where to mount an antenna and what effects its position on the vehicle have. What I can’t find much about though is the mount itself.

My practical options are to either mount the antenna on the rear bumper, or on one of the rear fenders. Plan on using a classic whip antenna, with a gutter clip to hold it down when not in use. But should it be mounted on a spring or not? Should I use a ball mount? I’m finding opinions, but without much fact (stated anyway) to back them up. What’s best practice?
