Re: 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!
