3' Black Firestik CB Antenna

Post  frenetic1amnesic on 9/25/2013, 6:43 pm

Bought a 3' Firestik without realizing it's too tall for my garage. Used it for a week, but it got scuffed up a bit from smacking the top of my garage. Cost me $20, I probably wouldn't ask more than $10 for it, so I might as well just give it away.

Here's the best pic I could get of the tip. Looks like it kinda broke through the insulation a bit.

Not a dumb question. I mean it's a standard CB antenna so it should work with any setup, but this is only the antenna with no other mounting hardware or connectors. At the very least you'd need a mount with an antenna stud to allow you to connect the coax line. I don't really know what's out there for JKs but here's something I just found:

Is it the tuneable kind? Or would you have to trim to adjust?

Oh, man. That's a freaking awesome deal, then.

Whoever in the club doesn't have a CB yet should definitely snatch this up, as that's like half the cost of the setup (For those unfamiliar: CB transmissions are highly regulated, so the only difference between the $20 walmart CB and the $200 one is bells-and-whistles, not transmission ability. The antenna is where you want to spend the money, and this is a good one).

If no one else takes it (local club members without a CB should obviously get first dibs), I need one for the JK and would totally grab it.

Whereabouts in Boston? I work west of Boston, so I take 90E to 93N on the way home during the week. Might be able to work something out, but I don't have the antenna with me today anyway.

Oh man I thought I sent a reply, sorry about that. My phone must have messed something up.

Do you need it before this weekend? If not, I can swing down by the Boston bowl this weekend and we can meet up.

Hmm, I've got plans right after work on Friday, so it's gonna have to be Sunday. That's pretty cool about Gillette Stadium though.
