    Ok, I've figued out which cb i want, now to the antannae. I'm thinking of a 3 or 4' fiberglass firestick or similar. Yes I know a 10' whip will be more effective, but I just want something for talking to buddies on the trail, and one for cruising up and down the highways talking to truckers. I'm putting a rig in each truck. On my blazer, i'll mount the ant off the rear bumper and on the cummins, it'll be mounted on the toolbox. Any suggestions for the best fiberglass ant? Cheap is good too. i'm always broke. Thanks.

    i would go with the k-40 to not the magnetic mount but the 4' fiberglass one, it handles quit a bit of power to i think 700 watts.
