Here's one, but there may be others:==================================
Lakeview, who advertises in QST, has these at the above web site. Be aware however, that the mount does not fit all license plate mounting configurations. I have one purchased for a 2000 Honda Sedan. It had to be turned upside down because the mounting place is recessed in the trunk lid. When the antenna is mounted, it covers part of the license plate.
There is also a question of how sturdy the mounting screw receptacles are. Some vehicles use a plastic insert which is threaded by a self tapping screw. Others use a metal insert, drilled and tapped for a machine screw. The plastic insert may not be sturdy enough for the antenna load.
I concluded that one of the trunk lip mounts was more satisfactory.
See: http://www.mscomputer.com for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather Stations", and lot's more. Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
