- What Will Your Better Half Let You Get Away With.
So always be aware of your surroundings. Especially when it comes to power lines, yes they are deadly and will kill you. Also take precautions if there are children in the area. A good idea is if you have a antenna tower bolt wood boards or metal up about 5 feet on the 3 sides of the tower. This way no one can start climbing up it. I would also run your coax cable up high enough to the house, so no one can swing on it. I recently saw the neighbor kids climbing out their back window hanging on the cable tv cable dropping to the ground. The crazy thing is the power lines were only a few feet away. Thank God I have not seen them do that again.
Okay the third item is what will your better half let you get away with. Yes you always want to keep peace in the house so play nice. Now living at home years ago I had to go with what my mother said. Fortunately my Mom was okay with what I was doing. I am sure she thought I was just a crazy kid. Today I have to make sure my wife is happy, so I don't anything too crazy. I certainly do not want to end up in the shed, it's cold out there.
So what base antennas do we see these days. Well if you are on the internet searching, there are plenty of resellers with various cb radio base antennas for sale. There are beam antennas made by Gizmotchy, Maco, Hustler and More. There are also plenty of vertical cb antennas available as well and they tend to be the Antron 99 and the Imax 2000 , but there are others as well. I believe the best place to go searching is on Ebay. You can find new antennas as well as used antennas. Just be aware of the seller and there ranking, plus reviews.
Okay last but not least, what about the Mobile CB Antenna ? Well these tend to fall into 3 main antennas.
- The Popular Firestick Whip.
- The Ever Popular K40 Antenna.
- The Wilson Antennas With A Magnet Mount.
Well that's it for now so happy transmitting with your cb radio.
