A mounting apparatus (

100

) suitable for retaining an antenna (

112

) includes a base (

102

) having magnetic sources (

104

) and (

106

) capable of providing varying magnetic forces. Magnet (

104

) retains the base against a metal surface (

410

), while an electronically controlled magnet (

) provides additional retention of the base (

102

) against the metal surface (

410

) when activated, thereby preventing movement of the base and antenna (

112

).
