I finally broke down and ordered a " IMAX 2000 " 5/8 wave base antenna. Got the old Galaxy Saturn in the living room, been useing a little dish antenna, but I gotta have a 5/8 wave antenna to get the most out of it. Should have it in a couple of weeks or so. IMAX 2000 Exposed Base Antenna IMAX 2000 New CB and Amateur base antenna. It has an end fed 5/8 wave length radiator with extended I-max (current Maximum) center section, radials are not required. A new mounting system makes it user friendly. The antenna and hardware can be assmebled on the ground and easily slipped over the mast or tower top when up in the air.
