Bought two of these in the 1990's. Still have one, while the other one was ripped off. Antenna performs well and that large magnet mount holds up to wind blasts and semis buzzing past you at 80MPH. However, I do not feel that this antenna really does much better than the famed K40, and even Radio Shacks best MAG mount that they've had for some 25 years. Still, for today, it's a better performing antennas to buy. My main gripe for the ones bought in the 1990's was the cheap, fragile, RG-58 coax that came with the MAG mount. Both broke in a couple of months after purchase. Just replaced with RG-mini 8 coax, and has lasted since. BTW, if you live where there are low bridges and lots of low tree branches, this antenna will hit them every time.

I've always ran a Wilson 1000 Mag. mount. I've had 1 on a full size Chevy 4X4, a S10 Blazer and several different cars. They are tough, stay on the roof and will handle any frequency a CB radio can be modified to transmit on. Unless you are running crazy high power. This is the antenna you want.

I bought a white Wilson-1000 used from a friend in 1989 for my new President HR-2510 and it more than handled everywhere the radio would go (and then some). Later when I got a ChipSwitch for the radio and extended the coverage down to 24.800 MHz it also handled this extra coverage (SWR) with room to spare. I commuted via the Florida turnpike every day and the antenna handled 80+ MPH speeds with no problem and never broke loose. Excellent build quality and worked as excellent as it was made. Highly recommend :)
