A little Radio Shack 3 ft. job will do it. They are very decent little suckers w/ an Swr around 1.4 average. Nice coil (center- load).

Wilson makes the best antennas & they offer 4 with magnetic mounts:

Little Wil, 3' long, least expensive
Wilson 500, 5' long, mid-priced
Wilson 1000, 68" long, more expensive
Wilson 5000, 68" long, overkill

I personally use the 500 & it's great. Keep in mind that the antenna is the most important part of a CB system & you get what you pay for.

Do i need a certain antenna?


The fiberglass provides no ground plane area for the antenna and radio waves. Your Standing waves (aka: SWR or Reflect) are probably very high. I suggest mounting the antenna on the cab of the truck. You "could" try aluminum tape on the cap and mount the sheilded side of the coax to it somehow. Without a ground plane much of the RF Power of you CB will be reflected back to the Final Output Transistor(s) (Final or Finals), overheat it and possibly damage and burn it/them out. If you are just running the CB without an amplifier(Linear or sometimes called a box), a magnetic mount antenna should work fine and be less of a problem than permanently mounted antennas. That's a plus when going into a parking garage. Even if you decice to get an amplifier at a later date, you should be able to use it with the magnetic mount antenna as long as the antenna you but is rated for several hundred watts, you Standing Waves are Low, and the amplifier doesn't put out more power than the antenna is rated for. I hope this helps.

Hi, my name is John. Welcome to FixYa. Do not really matter, but Wilson makes a great magnet mount that perfect for the job. Not that expensive, just make sure you mount it where nothing is blocking it.....good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa...John

I just purchased two radios. How far will they transmit and receive with good clarity in the city? I need to transmit and receive from about six to eight miles away clearly. Thanks.


bobengelman,

Typically and unmodified handheld CB will have a decent talk distance of 1-2 miles with both being a handheld. Further distances can be had if one of the radios was a mobile or base station with distances of more than five miles with weak signals. In some cases the antenna can be changed to a better longer antenna. Extention type antennas typically transmit about a mile per watt. Conditions such as terrain will have an impact on signal specifically mountains or buildings. Better results may also be had by purchasing a mobile magnet mount with a PL-259 to BNC to fit the radio. A magnet mount placed on a air conditioning unit or large cookiesheet as high as possible will make decent gains for distance if the radios are intended to be stationary.

I have a midland 1001z cb radio with a magnetic mount attenna by cobra. When I transmit receivers are getting a lot of squealing. Before I bought the midland i had a radio shack cb which worked find.


is this same antenna as before. you should always check the SWR's to see if set correctly.. other than that. bad grounds, bad microphone can make any radio squeal..

On my 77-099 Cb MIDLAND Radio I wonder can i use a antanna that is used for vehicle can be made for a home base radio place.I BOUGHT A MIDLAND CB RADIO AND MADE IN TO A HOME BASE RADIO THAT IS MADE FOR...


Generally this is not a good idea. The antennas that are designed for use with a car, use the body of the car as a ground plane. If you try to use this in a house (or even outside the house), it's not going to work.

Your only chance at even getting such a setup to work would be to attach the antenna to a LARGE flat piece of metal, approximately the size of a car, which is then grounded with a long metal rod into the earth.

I'd really suggest looking into buying a proper home CB antenna, which would then need to be mounted somehow to the roof of the house (or as high up as possible.) If this is not a feasible option, you should do a Google search for "CB Dipole Antenna", and get instructions on how to build and tune your own antenna. Dipoles are not overly difficult to construct, and perform quite well.

Is it my CB antenna or something else


First off, Midland makes a fine radio. Make sure your squelch is turned all the way down to receive distant signals (down meaning counter clockwise). The through the glass antennas are not the best thing in the world. I personally use a 102" whip and a 6" spring on a modified mirror mount. It is installed on the tailgate side of the tool box. The TX and RX is amazing. Wilson and K40 make great antennas also.

Transmitting problem on motorcycle


  • Make sure you run the CB directly to the battery. What you are hearing is the alternator whining. Even then sometimes a low pass filter may be necessary. Make sure the chassis of your CB is grounded with a copper braid strap too.

  • Hope this helps.
