A FireStik Dual KW CB Antenna Kit brings high quality matched components together for you in one complete package. This will eliminate having to spend the time and hassle required to design your own co-phase CB antenna setup.
The FireStik Antenna Company has put together a complete high performance dual CB mirror mount antenna kit ready for installation in your truck, RV, or pick-up. Add your own top quality CB radio and you'll be ready for the highway or backwoods in no time.
The FireStik Dual KW antenna kit is perfect for a running co-phased CB radio antennas on semi-trucks, RVs, Pick-ups, and OHVs. The 3-way mounting brackets allowing for mounting the KW antennas to any horizontal or vertical bar or you can separate the brackets and mount your antennas to any available flat surface.
The KW Dual antenna kit includes 18 feet of co-phase RG59A/U coaxial cable with three PL259 connectors. FireStik also chose to include two antenna springs and one of their stainless steel microphone hangers making this a truly fully loaded CB antenna kit.
Co-phase antenna systems emanate a strong signal pattern in front of and behind the vehicle. This makes for an ideal CB antenna for large vehicles hauling trailers, vehicles that lack adequate ground plane such as RVs, or 4x4s running trails in single file.
Remember to properly tune your FireStik FW dual antenna setup to make sure you are getting maximum performance from your CB radio.

Tuning the KW CB antenna is required for properly setting the SWR of your CB radio. Don't neglect this important task. Be sure to use a quality SWR meter for best results. We offer an online You Tube video with basic instruction on How to Tune a CB Antenna like the KWX. Essentially, if your SWR readings show that you need to shorten the antenna, you remove the antenna cap, and cut back the plastic coating on the tip of the antenna to slightly expose the copper wound wire. You will trim the wire, maybe 1/8" at a time, put the cap back on, and recalibrate/recheck your SWR readings until you achieve the desired result. If your SWR readings show that you need to lengthen the antenna, you could add a spring or possibly switch to a longer section of coax cable. In any case, be sure to properly store any excess coax in a figure 8. This is very important. Firestik does offer their easy tune tuning tip antennas, the Firestik II antennas (check out the FSX), but they only go up to 5 feet in length.
