looking to get an antenna for my CB.
anybody got any recommendations? it's been years since i bought one, and i'm sure there have been improvements made.

i bought a cobra 75wxst. it's super compact,

Depends on a few things: do you want maximum range, where do you want to mount it, how do you want to mount it, what type of vehicle is it ...

Probably the best compromise for most applications is a base loaded mag mount such as the K-40 or Wilson 1000 stuck on your roof. They have big strong magnets and are pretty efficient for loaded antennas.

Nice radio you got. I know a few other Runner guy's that have that unit.
I have 4ft FireStik II antenna. It gets out pretty good, and has the adjustable nut on top to set your SWR.
Here's a pic of it.
I also have a quick disconnect on it so I can take the antenna off nightly. There are cheap qd's, so watch out if you get one. I got a $10 one from G.I. Joe's that was junk.
This one here cost me $25 from a CB shop, but it's worth it. Really heavy duty.
