Quick Overview

This Firestik FireRing is one of our best-selling, most versatile coax cables and just about does it all! The ring-style connection is perfectly suited for low-profile, tight installations, as it extends horizontally -- not vertically -- from the mounting surface. Also, it's significantly more weather-resistant than standard threaded PL-259 connections, which are built primarily from rust-prone metal. The FME (For Mobile Equipment) end allows the PL-259 to unscrew, making installation, drilling and cable routing MUCH simpler, as the cable head diameter is reduced from 3/4" to 3/8". Built from RG-58 coax, the cable is 95% shielded for improved signal performance and uses a stranded center for increased durability. The coax is 18' long and includes an extra-long stud bolt to ensure compatibility with any CB stud.

Firering coax & stud, Heavy duty Antenna Spring

Review by EMSRotorhead

Second time ordering from Right Channel Radios. Firestik products are top notch with great instructions (supplied with product and on the web site) and the service is excellent. Product arrived even before I expected it. After installation of new cable, stud and spring the antenna (4' Firestik) needed only one minor adjustment to get below 1.5 on the SWR meter on all channels. (Posted on November 13, 2014)

I have tried everything with this antenna. Terrible SWR after mounting it many different ways. The concept is good but I have never been able to get it to work since day 1. It looks like I wasted a bunch of money for nothing and have to start over again and re-install. (Posted on October 12, 2014)

I wanted to go horizontally out of my mount instead of vertically, so this made sense. I also didn't want to solder, so I bought this one. Works great - absolutely no problems with it. (Posted on May 5, 2014)
