Cb handheld antenna upgrade

Post by kevtheskin »

Evening all,
Looking for suggestions/links to purchase an upgrade telescopic for my old Joppix ssb handheld. Bought one from a Bangkok dealer 10mtrs/llmtrs and its cack. It just has a matching circuit in the coil cack!. So any suggestions much appreciated thanks.

Cheers Kev

I'm not sure about aftermarket TNC telescopic aerials as I've heard similar things to what you've already said about them. However, if you can't find one, have you considered one of these new-fangled tactical jobbies that "fold up" or has anyone had any experience with them on here yet?:

These are on eBay mostly bnc not ideal but you could use a tnc to bnc adapter with, never used one myself.
The tactical antennas seem to be the rage .mates had 2 now one failed one snapped in weeks.
