    Where can you buy the steel whips at? I have looked at a couple of different sites that sell CB equipment with no luck at finding one. Thanks.

    See Ya,

    Radio Shack also carries a stainless steel off road whip. Its a bit shorter and more manageable. Put it on a spring and a ball mount right on the rear quarter.

    Just got back from the CB shop and man did I learn alot. Okay this is my current set up. Midland 77-285 with the hi and low channels and the power turned up. 18' coax and firestick mounted on the rear bumper. I now have my radio detuned with a linear 3' jumper, 18' clear coax, steel antenna, (2) ground wires from base to frame,and a power mike. This is the set up suggested to me from a shop. He said I would easily talk 15 miles. I know have a firestick 4' and 9' of (new never opened) coax forsale.
