    Which is better for this type of antenna? A Firestik one, a Cobra one that looks like a Firestik, or a Wilson that also looks like the Firestik? Thanks!

    Wilson makes great antennas and so does Frances. I didn't have any luck getting my firesticks Swr even at an exceptable level. Took them off and bolted on some wilsons and thats all it took. Great and worth every penny.

    I have a Firestik and think it is great. It use to stick up too high, but that was my fault. I lowered it today.
