maveric Posted August 20, 2018 Report Share Posted August 20, 2018 How many still use and listen to the CB radio? What CB and style of antenna do you use? My truck came with a Cobra 29 and the dual mirror mount 4' firesticks. I never use it, so pulled them off. But a couple months ago, we took the truck on a 3500 mile trip to the Washington coast, and part of the route was on interstate highways. It got me thinking that I should put it back in service. One thing I have noticed, (or I think I have) is that the mirror mounted antenna's seem to make the wind noise more noticeable. In my mind, this is because they add leverage to the tops of the mirrors, which in turn, causes the top of the door to pull away from the weatherstrip. I did notice it was quieter when they were removed. That being said, I installed a VHF 2 way radio in the truck, and used a roof mounted antenna with a wire whip. I mounted it to the cab, above the door, where the sleeper and the cab connect. it is out of the way, but doesn't make any noise. I am considering using something similar for the CB, but wanted to see others thoughts on the matter. Or if it is even worth the effort for something that isn't used anymore.
