    You can get them through Radio Shack, or http://www.hyelectronics.com/ I like the Mobile Antenna
    SS-102
    $10.25


    102" Stainless steel whip with 3/8" x 24 thread with removable end. Stainless steel makes a better antenna and the taller the better you receive and transmit.

    Thanks guys.. I looked at radio shacks site. I cannot seem to find their big whips.. Only the smaller fiberglass models.

    You may have to go into a Radcrap store and talk to a clerk. I know, I know, clerks can be frustrating to deal with, but maybe you'll get lucky and speak to one that knows more then what's on the screen infront of them.

    Try Bill's 2 way or Copper's electronics. Just do a search on CBs, you will have enough stuff to keep you up for hours. You can also hit any truck stop and find Francis whips.
