I currently run a 4 foot Firestik FSII antenna on my truck, and it does a good job. This is a wound/covered top loaded antenna. Wondering if I'd pick up any significant range improvements by going to a Wilson 1000 or 5000 which are 5 foot base loaded whip antennas.
Any feedback on this? I'm not looking for "I use a Wilson and it is the best!" or "Wilson is one of the best so yes!". I kinda need to hear from folks that have used both types of antennas or have at least compared their performance.
