I don't know if I can help you clear anything up - but...
I have and use a Wilson 1000 mag-mount - and will not use another antenna.
It has performed beyond all of my expectations - including/especially skip or local talk.
For the money spent - I think it is very hard to beat...

Predator 10K...Probably not avalible anywhere in London, but there's quite a few in the UK that have bought Predators...

If your interested, and can't find a shop that will ship outside the US, then give Kale a call @ 817-790-6239 (Fort Worth TX.) and I'm sure he will fix ya up! Kale is the builder and has shipped the 10K's all over the World for people.

The 10K is an excellent antenna but jessejamesdallas should have stated up front that he has more in this than just being a customer.

The Wilsons work just as well but no better than a 4000, they just cost more.
The only way you will improve is to get a true 1/4 wave whip that has no loading coil, but you can't drive around with one on the car unless you want to buy a triple mag mount or a puck mount or similar, and there is really not much of a difference in performance, maybe 1/2 an S point or less. The 10K's are the same, no improvement in performance, only benefit is you can stick a few KW's up them if you happen to have a big amp in the car.

If you want to improve the performance of the 4000 then get rid of the mag mount and bolt it to the centre of the roof, making sure you have a good ground connection there (I'm assuming your using a mag mount).

Back-up a bit...I have NO vested Interest in Cowtown Antenna's or the Predator 10K Antenna's...However, I have tested enough antenna's against the 10K's to know that they are well worth every penny they sell for. And apparently the people that makes Tram Antenna's thinks so to...Otherwise, they wouldn't have Cloned the Predator's...
