    Do these antenna\'s exist?

    I got a phat antenna mount for my Exploder, and when I get a CB, I want to get an antenna for it obviously...

    So is there any such thing as a 4 ft Firestik type antenna? That would bring the top right up with the safari basket I'm getting... I won't be using this on the highway or anything, just on trails and such, so I'm not too concerned about how far I can pick up signals... as long as it's within a few hundred yards all should be well...

    if you do get a fire stick make sure you get a spring mount for it so you dont break it off on a tree or something.

    With the fiberglass K40 [​IMG] you don't have too worry about that. And at (SF400
    4-FOOT WHIP
    1500 Watts

    $24.95) the price isn't bad either. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I bought a 4' Francis antenna at the local cb shop for $9.50, usually about $15.00 at truckstops. Pretty good antenna for the $$$ /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
