CB radios, even the best CB radio on the market, come standard with only 4 Watts of power, which is a great equalizer. The way that you can stand out from those who just buy a CB radio, antenna and mount package and get it installed, regardless of performance, is to get the best CB antenna that you can afford. The antenna is the most important component of your CB system.
Keep in mind that factory truck antennas don't work with CBs. Prices for antennas are affordable, so buying the best CB radio antenna won't set you back much more than if you buy a cheap antenna. If you want to maximize the distance that you're able to transmit and receive (and that's the point, to communicate, right?), you'll need to pay attention to the brand and type of antenna that you buy, how tall it is, and where and how you mount it.
The best CB antenna for you is the one that best suits your needs and the type of vehicle that you're putting it on. That being said, some brands are better and more popular than others. We can tell you this upfront—the most popular wire-wound CB radio antenna, and our best selling CB radio antenna, is the original Firestik.
