2005 Monaco Diplomat info 2 antennas

New to me 2005 Diplomat PAQ 40 ft, I have two rubber duckie antennas front center on roof. I found the CB connector cable under left side driver side thinking one was a CB antennas but I have never seen a small rubber antenna used for CB. Anybody know what they are?

I have an 04 and one is a rubber duckie and one is a short - old car cell phone style. So most likely, one is the CB. There is no room for anything else really, think of all the branches and such. So far I haven't really tried the CB I installed, it got it out of the shop.

One is CB. The other one is your radio.

I have three antennas on my roof: one is a CB antenna, and the two others are rubber ducky antennas for the radios. But my second rubber duckie isn't in front, it's on the passenger side, back a few feet behind the front door. That one is for the radio that is the outside entertainment center box.

If both rubber duckies are up front, and you don't have an obvious CB antenna, I suppose it's possible that one of them is for the CB? The only rubber ducky CB antennas I've seen have been on hand-held walkie-talkies.

I have an '06 PAQ with one rubber-ducky and a metal coily piggy-tail. As near as I can tell, my rubber-ducky is for the dash-radio and the coily-one is for the CB antenna.

After messing with both of them, I came to the conclusion that it really didn't matter which was which.... Far easier to just open the window and throw the CB mike at someone to get their attention, and to carry a stack of CD's if you don't want to talk to the DW while on the road.
