Looking for a replacement mast for my wilson 301102 glass mount antenna. Wilson says they won't sell the mast separately. Know where I might get one or another brand that will fit and work with Wilson mount? Thanks in advance. -Winston

I have a wilson 5000 mirror mount. I mount it on the drivers side mirror on the upper cross arm that goes to the mirror. It is mounted on this arm with a bracket and a so 239 connector so I can undo it if I have to ,leaving the antenna connected.I can change coax and not have to worry about undoing the antenna. Remember one thing. The antenna has to be checked for SWR.each time you move it to a different spot or to a different truck.
Hi, my name is John. Some twenty-three channel radios have the PA located between channel twenty-two (22) and channel twenty three (23). Make sure you have the right PA plug for it, as far as the antenna, get you a good one, say a Wilson 1000 or a Wilson 2000, they are great antennas, magnet mount. You need to press the PA button. Hope this was helpful...Rate this solution on the four thumbs-up. .Good luck John.
As for me ,the Wilson 1000 or Wilson 2000 are the best mobile antenna for a mobile. I have out talked a lot of base antennas with them, just put it on the top of car in the center or trunk, or middle of cab of truck, with a good SWR and you are talking and receiving. great antenna. ...hope this helps..
you can use 8 gauge wire, this is only 190 watt radio, do put a fuse in line close to the battery. Wilson 5000.....wher are you going to mount this..I'm guessing that this is the trucker series antenna. You do know that the load has to be at the top of the roof? Again how and where are you mounting the antenna?
Your antenna is probably still to long. You need to do a few things to see if your antenna is too long or too short. Here is a link to something I found that is very informative, and a post on how to do what you need to do. there is also a thread on the site that has common problems for high swr.

A good antenna goes along way for your transmit distants. It does close to 90% of the work on that side of things, but also remember that the radio itself does most of the recieveing. I good antenna brand to stick with is Wilson they make several units but for you a Wilson Little Wil would do the trick. There not real tall about 3' and cost around $40.00. If you want more performance a Wilson 1000 Mag mount is one of the highest performance antenna's on the market but its tall around 5' and cost somewhere around 80.00-90.00 . You can tune the radio and get alittle more out of it but not much, get a good antenna and go from there you will like it. Dont forget that any antenna has to be tuned (swr set) to the vehicle this will insure max performance.
