C.B. Antenna

Goldwinghen,

A lot of folks like the Sierra single antenna, replaces the radio antenna and doubles as both, seems as though they were about $96.00, could be wrong, there aren't any instructions that I was able to find (recently put my C.B. in) main problem I had, was, that there were two, three prong connectors under the seat, I of course picked the wrong one! I chose the black connector when in reality it should have been the clear. other than that........ pretty straight forward!
Good luck with your choices.

Scott

The Honda CB antenna is a low-quality antenna, you can do a whole lot better. You can improve the performance of your radio significantly by simply using a better antenna.

I replaced mine with the Firestik Firefly FL-4 ( http://www.firestik.com/CatalogFrame.htm ). The improvement in performance is very noticeable, especially in transmission range, but also for reception.

Here is a thread I wrote up about my project including the hardware needed to install to the factory antenna mast:
