UHF aerial will plug right into the UHF radio. I wouldn't bother trying to use some dodgy aerial as the wave length of the aerial is very important for clear signal.

I have 6 leads and normally around 5 antennas on my L depending where I am heading, highway or offroad etc...
Glass mount is ok for close groups, but a 7foot monster stick is my preference on the bull bar...

i gotta strip the whole lot, down to the center wire core for the first bit. then you need to take only the very outer layer off for the next bit. and then solder to the plug yea. the center core is the positive and the outer braid is neg and or sheilding. either way dont let them touch.
