Donald Davis: The first important thing of any antenna for any type of communications service, Ham CB, cell service etc.... is that you own and use a SWR meter and know how to use it. For me, if you can't fine tune (trim it) the antenna.... leave it in the store! As the SWR goes up, your effective radiated power goes down. If you only have 4 watts to start with... even more important. I want as near to 100% of my RF to leave the antenna. The old dipole antenna.... you can get it right on the money with a little effort!
Josef theradiogeek: Save your money and get a real radio. (Ham)
jeremy h: Them ham ops walk around like thier crap dont stink and 2 corn cobs shoved up thier ass..
scorpiocat69: For horizontal polarization, either antenna can be hot but for vertical polarization you want the top hot."...from wolfington
p.s. for verical apps the "top" antenna is "hot", bottom one is "cold".
scorpiocat69: WOW! This is unreal...Hope to be "jawin" with ya, might even try that spkr-wire thingy!
Will be shoutin' out from Port Jervis area on a base/mobile GE Model 3-5871-B....Yeah, it's an "oldie" but I just found it in an old box in storage...It was Dad's...he'd be laughin' now if he was alive: KBEX6837, signing off...see ya soon, and THANKS!
Bob BURRILL: Radio is radio... i'm an "amateur" too... and what that means is ... Not Professional. You don't have to be Art Bell to enjoy the airwaves.
purplemutantas: It's sad to see the tension and arguments between hams and CBers. I am planning on getting my ham license. I did a little CB when I was a teen. I currently own a couple of hand held CB's and plan on getting a mobile or base station CB. I plan on having the CB's to compliment the ham radios. CB is nice because it's unlicensed and I can hand a radio to any friends or family. For emergency communications it's nice to keep your options open. So I am opting for ham, CB, and possibly FRS.
Jeff Land: very nice setup maybe i will try to talk to you someday
powerbassjunkie06: Very nice . I've got mine on a antron 99
coupescuts: I remember it being around a 1.5
mark197878: i know this is made long time ago .wondering is your swr swing high during modulation?thanks

sonarofthesouth: no foolin just call your friend on the other end..................dont fool nobody!!!!
Robert Reed: For the record CB use to be a Ham band not the other way around as some would lead you to believe.
Gailen Gillespie: I'm guessing it would be the vertical wire. If I understand, almost all C.B. work is on vertical antennas.
dirtbike5100: Not to shabby! AM or SSB?
coupescuts: @dirtbike5100 That is a barefoot Uniden Washington and we spoke to one guy that was 21 mi away as the crow flies.
dirtbike5100: Is that a stock radio? How far were you getting out?
coupescuts: @lac365 Good question, I don't remember.
