3 questions already asked

What is the length and width of the base on this antenna?
[ Martha  Sep 13, 2018 ]
1 answer
Just a shade over 1.25" wide and 3" high
[ Blase  Sep 19, 2018 ]
Is there a replacement mast available for this antenna? Mine is now bent but I would rather not replace the whole antenna because the base is still ok.
[ Jason  Jul 05, 2017 ]

The mast is detachable, but we don't have a replacement for it. I recommend contacting Metra on 800-221-0932 to see if they can point you to a dealer that does sell the replacement mast. My Bio:

is cable included?
[ plaka  Mar 30, 2015 ]

I do not recall ordering a separate cable, but it has been a while. The antenna is great, and I had a cable with it, but I might have had to order it separately. Their tech support is excellent, so give them a call and avoid the grief of not having what you need when you are ready to install.
