kidphc Posted August 13, 2019 Report Share Posted August 13, 2019 Marc had mentioned he believes the current commercially available antennas are too small. So that had brought up some questions. I had planned on getting a CB radio for the interstate road trips. More comms, more situation awareness, or at least I hope. Currently, FTM400 CAP/MARS being installed with a Larson 2/70SH dead center in the roof. Probably will switch it out for a 2/70B in the center. Maybe a second 2/70B installed 20" inches aft for a ID 5100a. Stock AM/FM antenna is mounted to passenger side fender by the windshield. Yes, parking garages are a big want, so I will need a reasonably flexible or lashable antenna. It was going to be a small cheap 5 watt cb radio with one of the following: -108 whip and breedlove ball mount on the rear driver fender. --- This one is tough since the previous owner had damaged the rear fender and the gas fill port is on that side.-108 whip on the rear bumper---This one is tough since the whip will contact the body when it is lashed down.-5" firestick or trucker whip with top loaded coil on the driver front fender.--- Passenger fender has the am/fm radio I know none of the mounting points even come close to a terrible ground plane. Any suggestions on radio, antennas, placement any thing else? Things you guys found on previous installs. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
