Hustler Antennas have been a leader in producing quality antennas and antenna accessories for over 40 years. Made in the U.S.A. Hustler is known as the go to antenna by over the road professionals everywhere. One of the best antennas for off-road drivers and “semi-pro’s” everywhere is the Hustler IC56 102 inch stainless steel CB whip antenna!
A true ¼ wave CB antenna when combined with high quality 18 feet of coaxial cable! The IC56 is truly the holy grail of antennas for two-way radio communications!
The 102 inch stainless steel CB whip antenna is flexible beyond imagination. The IC56 can flex a full 180° without damage – thanks to its bend and kink resistant construction. This 102 inch antenna is not likely to break if you accidentally encounter a low garage overhang or tree limb during your travels.
Having a taller than standard radio antenna can be disconcerting for drivers who live in areas that are prone to electrical storms, after all no one wants to wave a lightning rod and chance igniting the fury of Zeus! The Hustler IC56 was designed with a static dissipation tip specifically to reduce unwanted static buildup that greatly reduces any risks associated with electric discharge.
The 102 inch whip antenna is easily handled by bending and storing with the use of Kalibur K101X CB antenna steel whip tied down. Secure the IC56 to the rain gutter, fore, or aft on your vehicle with the K101X until you’re ready to enjoy maximum range capability of your CB radio.
The standard 3/8x24 threaded stud of the IC56 is fully compatible with antenna mounts for Hustler, FireStik, ProComm, and many other manufacturers. CB World recommends the Hustler SSM-1 professional ball mount for the strongest mounting solution. The SSM-1 includes a heavy duty barrel style antenna shock spring which is an often used antenna accessory with the 102 inch SS whip.
