    Theres a guy here in San Antonio that sells them on ebay for about 20.00 shipped. What kind of end do you need? He might be able to tell you if you write to him. Here's a link.

    I'm not affiliated with this guy in any way....I was just looking for an antenna and his ad came up.

    I did order one of these magnetic mount antenneas.
    But i am not sure if i am getting the riite connector becuase I ordered a R-SMA and my pci card is using a RP-SMA.

    Is RP-SMA the same as R-SMA ?

    i use the 5.5dB mag mount, it hold on pretty well. i cover about 700-800 miles a week on pretty much all types of road and in any weather. its still going strong.
