Itasca prewired for C/B, what kind of antenna did you select?
As many of you know, we just acquired an '04 Itasca Horizon with the 330 CAT. Well, it's prewired from the factory for the installation of a C/B radio. It appears the PO had one but removed it and the antenna. Well, there's a "stub" in/on the roof for the antenna and it appears to be female 1/4-20 threads. Typically, C/B antennas, like the Fire Stick and others, are fairly stiff and don't bend very well so, being that high up, I'm not too sure I'd like that. Yes, you can get fairly short ones like around 24" if I recall but, I'd have to check into that.
I'd like to have a "Loaded" short, flexible antenna if possible. We're in the process of securing a "drive under" tarp type cover and although it's right at 12' at the sides and, it peaks somewhere around 15.5' at the peak. That means it (the antenna) may still hit the front edge of the cover. If it's flexible enough, that's OK but, if I have to use a Fire stick or something that's equally stiff, I'm not liking that at all.
So, anyone have a part number or, a model of an antenna for a C/B that's good and will work and is short and flexible? I hear that Auto Zone sells antennas but, not sure they would work for a C/B. Thanks ahead of time.
