so I have had a cb setup for a few months and I have the Wally Mart special that looks like this:
It works well (yes I know I need a Wilson) but the bottom half silver section and spring coil looks like something right out of 1970's.on the back of my nice car. so I basically took the silver section between the base and upper antenna section and removed it. then screwed the middle black coil section with upper antenna back on. So im left with about a 16" antenna. Will this significantly hurt performance? It seems to work the same but I havent been on any long highway trips in awhile. Thanks!
-oh and I dont transmit ever I just listen.
