IMO: this is a perfectly reasonable question to pose to the club on this alias.
A Diamon X50NA is a dual band (2M & 70cm) antenna, with a coax antenna coupling on it.
You will need coax cable to connect between it and your radio.
I assume your radio has a coax connect on it, correct? What kind of radio is it?
Have you thought about how to connect your ‘radio shack’ via coax to that antenna?
Is this question (to the club) only about WHERE to mount the antenna, or also to choose the antenna?
Which way does your home face? Is the mass of Squawk Mtn behind your house to the south?
Meantime, I have some dual band 29” antennas that directly attach to my handheld dual band radios.
My favorite: Diamond SRH789, which is extensible.
I attach it to my i-Com T90A triband radio: 70cm, 2M and 6M.

For adaptors, try VETCO on Northup near 124th Ave SE in Bellevue. https://vetco.net/
They are the ONLY competent electronics component store in the state.
I get RF adaptors there, and wire.
PS. I own a J-pole antenna, but I think it has a continuity problem.
I don’t use it; you are welcome to it if you can fix it.
Do you have a soldering iron and other wire handling tools?

I have an Ed’s dual band on edge of roof connected to a HT radio and am pleased how well it works.
