I have modified my ford Escape's stock AM/FM antenna mount to hold a top loaded CB antenna. I used it on a 15 hour drive I just completed and it worked awesome along with a Uniden 520xL, a Firestick 4ft, and the AR-15 signal splitter. Was getting consistent distances of 5-8 miles with it.
The valet on our hotel broke the antenna off however (didn't have a spring), so now I'm in the market for a new one.
What's the best top loaded 3-4ft antenna available? I looked for wilson, but couldn't find any in that length. Are Firestik's really my only option?
