Re[2]: Antenna FM/CB

     Thanks for the suggestion Dan but the problem is that I have a Coupe 
     and there really is no way to route a cable to the exterior without 
     drilling(Refuse to do) and I can't imagine where I would mount the 
     K40.  But I will use this on my fiances Saturn SL4.
     A few years ago I heard about a converter for an FM antenna that would 
     pull in CB traffic.

CB man here.  Can't go wrong with a K40 antenna.  The base and whip 
come apart with a twist of the wrist, and you can just install 
the whip when you need it.  All that is left is a 1" high black 
round mount on the trunk lid, hardly noticable.

If all you want is car to car, you can even use the antenna inside the 
car, or there is a splitter that will let you use your radio antenna. 
But I would recommend the K40 as a good solution that will let you 
talk a lot further away than 1-2 car lengths!
