Just got my Midland 75-822 via UPS. Small hand held CB. Plugged it in and took it on my commute. Lots of static. I did hear two guys taking about their medical problems (go figure) for about 10 seconds, but that's about it. I think I need an external antenna. The box it came in has an order form all ready for the companion antenna. Should I go for a "whip" or a glass mounted?
