        Comments about RadioShack® Stainless Steel Mobile CB Antenna:

        I have had one of these mounted on an old J-10 jeep for several years now, I consistantly get reports of being heard at 100+ miles this is not skip as when other mobile units are approching they say I never fade out. I also put one on the wifes isuzu rodeo between the two I can break her squelch at 80 miles no problem.
        the secret is to properly mount and tune them, Any reasonable radio can do this without a kicker,

            SWR 1-1.2 right out if the package. strong magnet. Really gets your signal out. Not many of our local Radio Shacks sell cb equipment anymore.

                Bought this antenna for behind cab bed mount for my 83 f150 and could not get better then 3 swr. Took my solor halfbreed on my comanche and tuned it for the f150 and had to cut this antenna down to get the antenna to tune for an under the hood mount for my comanche so i didn't loose money on this antenna and still have antennas for both pickups. the antenna could have been a factory mess up cause mine said 67" instead of 64".

                    This thing is a PILE!!! I bought two of these and couldn't get a good SWR reading out of either. I cropped just as you are suppose to do, but the best I could get was 1.8. After taking another small amout off, the SWR jumped to 2.0. From there it was junk. Save your money try to find something else.

                        Radio shack was on to something with the design of this antenna. Now if they would only just follow through with a HIGH POWER 2,000 watt version they would sell a whole lot more of these.

                          I mounted in the back door of my SUV and it works great, it really works like the expensive antennas available in the market, I got 1,2:1 SWR easily by shorten the whip. I would recommend this to anybody.

                              I drove many trucks in my day but the toughest on antennas was a 12 yard bobtail dump truck. After breaking 6 fiber glass antennas in a month I went to this mini whip. I drove for one company 3 1/2 years in south central Texas. I was in cedars, low oaks and whatever mother nature could throw my way. Of the time I was with this co.and using the mini whip, I broke 2 base loads, and about 6 to 8 stingers due to the trees and brush I had to drive through. I believe in this antenna for the abuse I would put them through before they would break, far more abuse then a fiber glass antenna. I had it mirror mounted on the drivers side on the top mirror arm. Used with a peeked 10 meter radio and I could talk and hear for 40 plus miles with no kicker.
