|Model / SKU:||Wilson W1000 TL-BK|
|Recommended for:||High-performance, long-range CB use for cars, SUVs or any other vehicle with a trunk lip. If using a 4-watt stock CB radio, we recommend this antenna over the more expensive Wilson 5000. The 1000 is cheaper and will provide similar transmit and receive performance. Paying more for the Wilson 5000 is justified if you're running high-wattage radio equipment or if the antenna will be used frequently in extreme winter conditions, as the 5000's floating coil is designed to prevent ice-related performance issues.|
|Notable Features:||Class-Leading Range, Screw-Off Antenna Coil, Rated for 3,000 Watts|
|Compatible with:||All CB radios. The antenna can be mounted to any vehicle with a trunk lip. The mount slides over the edge of the trunk lip, and screws on the bottom of the mount clamp the antenna to the vehicle.|

The Wilson 1000 is one of the most rugged antennas you can buy. It's made with Mobay's thermoplastic, which costs a bit more but is the best material available. Accordingly, it comes with a two-year warranty and is guaranteed to outperform any base-loaded CB mobile antenna (except the Wilson 5000) or your money back! (Please see manufacturer's website for details.) The Wilson 1000's higher performance is a result of several new design developments that bring you the most powerful CB base-loaded antenna available in its price range.

Nice Antenna!Review by Andrew G
I can hear everyone for several miles, from the hills of east Tennessee to the plains of west TN. I drive from Knoxville to Memphis and this antenna has given me great results and was an excellent replacement for my poor quality radio shack magnetic mount.
Installation was easy, and the actual antenna detaches from the base and stores in my trunk when I have to get into parking garages or other tight spaces. The antenna also came with a weather cap so that when I take it off, the base doesn't get damaged. Be prepared for a very long box when this is shipped to you. The cable included was just long enough for me to run it from my trunk to under my seat where I ultimately mounted it (so it doesn't get stolen in Memphis) if you are planning on a dash install or some other location and want to cable to be under your molding, then it likely will not be long enough for the install on mid to large sized vehicles and you will need to get an extension. (I have a Camry so that will tell you that the cable is a lot shorter than you think it will be once it is run under your paneling).
You will have to play with the length adjustment to get the best reception, but it is very easily done with the included wrench. I'll give this a 5, and Wilson even guarantees that it will be the best transmitting antenna or your money back.
