My old thread on this topic has been closed, so I have Started this one.
Basically, I had a feeling that my Cobra WX 75 ST radio could get better reception than I was experiencing with my Lil' Wil antenna. That thread explored the options with many great suggestions from our more experienced CB users.
That thread can be seen here:
Well, a lot of time has passed, and I finally got around to trying another antenna. I decided to stay with Wilson, and went with the Wilson 1000. After a short test drive today I can tell you that I am convinced there is a very noticeable improvement over the Lil' Will
I am also considering trying a Silver Load fiberglass antenna, but I'm afraid the Wilson 1000 Mag mount will not hold up to high speeds on the highway. Ideally, I would like it to be good up to 130 MPH. I don't drive that fast (hell, my car could only go 115 anyway), but if it's good for that anything less than a bird will not knock it off the trunk.
Does anyone know if the Wilson 1000 mag base is enough to hold a 5' Silverload glass antenna reliably at higher speed?
