Had problems with lost communications msg on my 320 so bought a garmin long range. It's hand held but I mounted it on the frame of my mule. No problems since. It must extend to 4 foot plus and areas of the lease where I was dropping contact (big deep draws) no more issues. Best tracking purchase I've made.

Chet,
Will you post a photo of how you mounted this to frame? I am wanting to do the same thing.

Thanks,

Chet, first chance you get change those ties out for the black ones, they're UV protected

Garmin sells a mag mount long range antenna for about $40. That's what I use on my golf cart. I don't have any deep draws other than where my tank runs. I have gotten 6 miles from it.

Mag mount antenna works good. We used one a few years ago, Astro 220 didn't like being inside cab of truck. Was better than holding out the window.
