Cobra HG-A2000 antenna

Post by billyz » Wednesday 17th Feb 2010, 4:52

I am a newbie , 56 year old. My son the trucker wanted a CB radio for his birthday. I got him a Cobra 29 Black chrome New, but with mods done to it. I need an antenna of course. I heard the Wilson 1000 w magnet mount (for his car) was a really good one, Trouble is I cannot find one in stock. Then I heard the new ones were being made in China and not as good as the older ones. I saw this Cobra HG-A2000 , it says it is made in USA. Is it as good as the Wilson 1000 ?

For all intents & purposes they're both baseloaded quarter-wave mag-mounted mobile antennas (capacitively coupled to the bodywork of the vehicle - this means there's no metal to metal contact!) & will be much of a muchness - anyone who claims they see two or three S units difference is talking out of their hat!

From experience I can vouch for the Wilson (5000 model) which has a very strong magnet, low-loss coax & will stay put at 90mph + (allegedly Officer! :angel: ) & is easily removed when not in use.

Personally, I'd go for a center or top loaded antenna directly coupled to the bodywork if performance is the primary consideration but your circumstances may differ so you need asses your own requirements before deciding.

You're 5 & 9 - what's your QRZ again???
