NMO antennas are base loaded!
The drawback is that there are fewer effective mounting positions, as the coil has to be above the vehicle. Advantages are that they are less vulnerable to damage when struck and they can handle higher power outputs.
Please visit our Help Center for guidance in selecting the best equipment for your application.
If you are wanting to convert an NMO mount to a standard 3/8" x 24 thread mount, check out the NMO38 and PCNMO38. This will allow you to select a standard thread antenna to mount with the NMO coax/mount!
Remember: CB Antennas need to be tuned to their application. This is VERY important! Tuning your antenna will help to optimize your antenna system performance and help to ensure that you won't potentially damage your CB radio. Here are some links to our Help Center to assist you with this:
