RoadPro 54" Air Cooled Helical Coil Center Loaded CB Antenna, 1000 watts rated power. Got one today.
Try it out then YOU tell US if it is a good antenna.
I agree w/ Capt . but it reminds me of an Old Hustler antenna I had ( less the coil ) that worked well ! But that whole advertised " Air Cooled" thing is throwing me .
I'll try it out I don't run power I just have a Bearcat 980SSB
357magnum, the air cool description in the ad has a simple explanation. This company apparently made another model of this design that was oil cooled. See link:
All coil antennas to me are nothing.
Just a antenna shortened down coil wise claiming big performance
Google coil cb antennas exposed
You'll see most of these get 86%-92% resonant and accurate
Unless you get a pred 10 k
I don't do coil antennas
It's why I have a 108 whip
Reason I bought the coil with whip is cause I didn't want a long firestik sticking up on my roof
It was cheaper than a Wilson wanted the Wilson cause had 2 2000 truckers in the past but couldnt afford the 60 dollars
Firestik would be worse buddy
I'm not a big fan of the Wilson cans either
What you need to decide is if you want a mag mount or hard mount.
Mag mounts pickup more interference sometimes but I can buy a used Wilson 1000-5000 on Facebook for $50-60 used
That antenna you have will do maybe a little better than a firestik
But anything roadpro to me is nasty
If you want to use your cab get a better coil type like the pred 10k on your roof
I only suggest the best
With your setup now your going to be banging your head because of the tx on those are horrible
That's just my 2.00$ opinion
Marconi , You know I get it . But 1000w air cooled ? If you tell me that makes a difference , I believe you . I am not worthy " All Antenna God " ! And that is with my utmost respect . Only a few of you on here that test the results & I respect that . PS Don't waste it on this antenna ! Sorry Guy it's a Wrap
Just didn't want to hear the fiberglass antennas whisling while going down the road. Here is a picture of where I have it mounted.
If you’re like the rest of us, curiosity will lead to an eventual replacement.
Those things are bug catchers. Dragon(fly) slayers.
I can just look at that and tell you that's not going to do much for you
Be better off to get something better
You wouldn't want a firestik up there anyway
If you want a roof mount don't skimp on cheap made hardware
Cheap made hardware what hardware you refuring to?
I said I was done , I lied ! $ 24.95 ? Hey I like the look ... minus that coil . Let us know ! In all honesty I don't expect much . I'm in a mood today ! But you get what you $ for . Iv'e been wrong before . Fire Sticks ? Been there done that ! I say Phewey ! Only one that was worth a Rat's Arse was the 7' I used for a whip on my Fj -40 . JMO
