Antenna, mount and coax not included
The importance of the stud mount cannot be overstated. The antenna stud mount acts as a bridge between the antenna and the coaxial feed line. Accordingly, it needs to allow for efficient transfer of your signals to and from the transceiver. If the stud mount doesn't perform that task efficiently, you end up with unneeded loss. If that isn't enough, the stud mount must be strong enough to withstand the stress from an antenna subject to severe wind load and vibration. In heavier-duty applications, adding a lock washer and nut may increase hold.
