Six foot stainless steal will all ways be the best. But you'll have to make hole in your vehicle.
Magnet type I use is a Wilson 1000 brand get it you'll love it. You probably will not have to adjust your SWR.

Trying to find another way to get over the air channels, without the air coaxial connection. all i have is the cable coax connection.

I know some things that can should have a nice digital air tuner in yours...(my girlfriend has nearly the same identical TV, but larger)...anyway, first time I had it 'search' for channels, I accidentally let it tune both Air + Cable, and was surprised when it came up with as many channels over-the-air digital as my own TV did WITH digital air antenna! So, you can scan for both. Secondly, try this kidding, it lets you enter your zip code and antenna height, and it'll give you the various channels you might expect to receive, PLUS what kind of antenna(s) you'd have to buy to get the various types (that's right--'surprise', there are different types of digital signals, jeez)... Finally, go to '' and buy one of their cheap-o (you'd think) but highly-valuable and quality digital air antennas (link at bottom of this post), or the RCA ANT751 antenna, or another good digital air antenna, and you'll have the best outfit you could hope for (unless you still have your old tower, and can put a good one, or larger one, on it!)... That Monoprice 'generic' digital air antenna is the exact same one as you'd pay $60+ for at Radio Shack (I've bought both--I know).... Happy Viewing! that link to buy the Monoprice antenna: >>click here

Hi, I am thinking of buying a dx-95t. I am a novice but I do not want to start with some rubbis and upgrade later. It would be used in a house in Budapest Hungary to communicate with friends locally or...

To be able to get the same distance in all directions for local use the best type of antenna is a vertical with as much gain as possible. Most makers quote gain in db and this means how much better the antenna is than a plain wire antenna. This antenna will also work for dx on sidebands but the signal goes out in all directions the same distance.

If you want to get a longer range in one direction you have to sacrafice the distance in other directions. To do this you need a directional beam antenna. There are several brands with very little between any of them. What you need to be looking at, if you decide to use a beam type antenna is either "yagi" or "log periodic array" antennas. These are types of antenna rather than brand names. The log periodic array will give the longest range and the yagi will give the next best. Log periodics are very expensive but give the best results. Yagis come with different amount of elements. The more elements it has the better it works but even yagis with 3 to 4 elements give significant improvements over vertical antennas. Because both these type antennas concentrate the signal in one direction you need to be able to rotate it to the direction you want to send, and receive, the signal unless you only want to send it one direction. This means that you might need a mast and rotator which allows you to turn the antenna from a control beside the radio. These make the hobby even more expensive so it depends on how much you can afford to spend. Also make sure that the antenna you buy is resonant on the frequency you'll be operating on i.e. 27Mhz. Otherwise you'll burn out your radio. If you google the different types of antennas you'll find places selling them. You can also buy an antenna tuner that matches antennas to your radio if the frequency is not exactly matched to the radio. It reduces your power out a little but makes very little difference to the range of your signal. Also get the antenna as high as possible to a maximum of 30 feet. After that the gain is offset by the loss of signal through the co-ax cable. Use low loss co-ax cable to reduce the amount of signal you lose between the radio and the antenna.

Having said that I've contacted America from the west of Europe several times using a vertical antenna so you might not want to go for the best.

You need to be aware that there's an eleven year sunspot cycle which affects the long range radio communications. At the height of the sunspot activity you'll get long ranges without any difficulty and at the low you'll rarely get long range. At the moment we're just coming out of the low so it will be another few years before we reach a high. Just don't judge your dx activity on how well you do at the moment.

Good luck with the radio and if you enjoy it consider becoming an amateur radio operator. It gives you more frequency bands to use so the sunspot activity doesn't limit you so much as other frequencies improve with low sunspots. I started off with CB and am now an amateur radio operator for over 30 years.

I would like to know what type of a CB radio I should buy for an 25 ft RV I have no clue. Price no problem.

any radio would do. it is the antenna on rv's that you need to watch. i normally make my own setups, but there are antennas for rv's by everbhart company which are no ground antennas, you would need this on all the new fiberglass body rv's, and the bigger the antenna the better it will perform anything smaller than 4ft the range is low.. But i normally make my customers there setups using a normal antennas and making a halfwave stub from coax the make the antenna a no ground system just like the factory ones. but i use rg58or8x to give a larger bandwidth (problem with factory rg174 types narrow bandwidth)... The radio type, either a cobra 25ltd if you have room, or if needing a compact unit try the cobra 19dxIII models or uniden pro 510xl.. the cobra 75wxst is an all in handheld unit which also is not a bad choice. 3174269649... If you need more help i would be glad to assist you.

What kind of indoor/outdoor antenna I need to purchase for this TV? What specification do I need to look for?


An outdoor antenna is more better than indoor antenna. If we fix an indoor antenna, especially in rooms in a flat type structure buildings, due to its iron network structure reinforced inside its concrete will oppose a considerable obstruction to tv signals to get through. Moreover, if any paerson walk through these telescopic type antenna, picure will get shiver of it will be distrurbed.

So buy an outdoor antenna, and hoist it at suitable place, where there are no obstructions comes between the signal path of the transmitter and the antenna. Get an antenna, whcich has as many as cross elemets, if it is a yagi type. As number of elements increses, the sensitivity and seletivity of the antenna will also increase, resulting in good and detailed picture clarity. OK

Any regular TV antenna will work, some are optimized for use with DTV but I have had a ten year old antenna work as well as a brand new one.
You should buy an antenna from a place with liberal return policies(Walmart, Target or anyplace that will allow you to return them with no questions asked).
Sometimes the more expensive antenna will not perform as well as the cheap one.
Here is a link to a site with good antenna info.

Let me know if I can assist further.

I am getting high swr readings on my base station antenna. It is a 102'' whip and I don't think I have it connected properly. I connected the center copper wire to the antenna but did nothing with the...

what i would do is go and buy a real cb antenna mount like a mirror mount and get a peice of sheet metal and screw the mount to the metal and screw that to the roof or side of the house and you should buy a spring that will also help with the swr and if you by the mount you can just screw on a standard pl259 connector

I need to sawder the antanna back on is there a certain way

if the telescopic antenna is broken you cant solder it, but you can buy a replacement antenna,some scanners have an antenna that just screws into the circuit board through a hole in the top of the case,or you can get a telescope antenna that will attach to antenna jacks on the back of the set if it has those, which im sure that model does. Antenna jacks came come in several types , one is called a BNC which just pushes in and turn about half a turn to lock in place,also some scanners have the type of jack like the back of a car radio, with those you just push them in and you can find telescopic antennas with the auto type plug at a 90 degree angle that will work fine.If you need more help let me know

You will need to buy a signal amplifier antenna. One that doe not have to be connected to the radio. It will provide the amplified signal and the radio antenna (the a/c line cord and the back of the clock/radio) will be able to pick up the signal from the amplified antenna.[] this web link will show you one type of these antenna's. Copy the web link and paste it into the address bar in your browser. It will take you to the website. There maybe other types of these antenna's but this one had the best price. Call the store and talk to them before you buy the antenna to make sure it will work in your situation. I hope this information helps you with your antenna problems.
