Ice broke the mag mount element (pics)
Driving from PDX to EUG on I-5 at around 10:30 pm Sunday night, I hear something hit my trunk lid. Pulled over to investigate and discovered the stinger from my mag mount on the roof had accumulated ice and snapped off just below the coil. I'd been going between 60-70 mph for a little over an hour in thick fog and the temp was about 30 deg. I lost it somewhere between mp 210-215. Here are before and after pics of the Comet dual band M-24B. All that's left is a 3 inch stub.

That sucks!
Those who plan and prepare, endure the weather!!
