    From what I have been told and also have read on this subject a single antenna in most cases will transmit farther than dual antennas will. On a dual antenna set-up the antennas need to be 9 feet apart which you cannot do on a blazer or pick-up truck. You can find some very useful information on the wilson antenna site. Try www.wilsonantennas.com

    You can do duel antenna's on a Blazer. Just don't hook one of them up. Hooking both up is called co-phaseing. A Blazer isn't wide enough to co-phase on. You'll get SWR problems if you try it. Buy your pair of anteena's, just run one as a dummy. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    I've been investigating CBs lately too. For basics on how they work, look here.
