Default Wanted CB Radio Antenna

Anyone have an old mag mount cb antenna they no longer use that you'd like to get rid of. Need it for when we go camping and 4x4.

Keep an eye out on CL and ebay for K40 or K30 magnetic mounts. I used to have the K40 coil on their magnetic mount. Excellent antenna and mount system.

Take a wire coat hanger.
Straighten it out.
Wrap it with layer upon layer of aluminim foil.
While wrapping the foil stick some wire end in there.
Once finished wrapping attach it to a magnet.
Now attach the other ends of the wires to the radio.

Done. Cheaply too!

So I'm guesing that my idea works, just a bit too well

I guess you need a radio that can handle my big antenna
