    I use an ATAS autotune (screwdriver type) antenna mounted on a set of poles attached to the chassis (put it up when parked only) it is paired with a yaesu rig that recognises it and auto tunes according to the band in use.
    I do have a set of preloaded whip antennas that I used to use that fit a standard mag mount, used to use it on a plate connected back to the chassis. Could be for sale never really thought about it. I'll have to look them out from the loft. Drop me a PM if you are interested before I go hunting for them.
