Cool, a shorter antenna. 2 questions if I may. How much shorter is it? and is it a direct replacement, meaning no new holes to drill or old ones to patch.

Thanks

Wellll....let's just say I'm hoping so. Contacted King and the current one is about 8.5" high, which puts my trailer at about 10'2". So the newer Jack King antenna is roughly 3" shorter according to them, and it LOOKS exactly the same, only shorter. So fingers crossed that the base plate has matching holes. But I've taken just the top antenna off (3 screws going up), the bolt that holds the cover/sleeve, and pulled the black adjuster out from the bottom (above the bed where the adjustment knob is) when I needed to get the trailer into a 10' space and it just clears. This will hopefully eliminate all that. Also while removing all that, I noticed the top of the main base plate was cracked and the coax connector from the antenna to the inside meter was pretty frayed and cut. So I guess I'll have a spare flat directional antenna for the lower base as well.

Got the new antenna today, almost 3" lower and 5 of the 8 screws line up with the existing holes. I'll drill new holes in the antenna base to match the roof holes rather than add new ones. But first have to figure out whether to use the Sikaflex or the Proflex. Not crazy about the blobbing on top of the original screws, but there was excellent adhesion to the screws, base and the roof, so it wasn't going to leak around them. Plus my TA is now under 10' tall and in a pinch can go in my enclosed shop if I have to work on it ....

new antenna is on

And the 5'er is now under 10' in total height. So now when I want to put it in the shop where all the tools are and for serious weather, it fits! Sealed up with Sikaflex UV and used the same holes in the roof, but added 3 holes to the bracket to match up.
