Wilson designed this antenna with an exclusive impedance matching transformer to give good SWR without sacrificing power gain. The FGT series includes a tunable tip, making antenna tuning as simple as twisting a knob. Wilson uses 18-gauge silver-plated wire to reduce resistive losses and increase performance.

My Favorite

Review by Farmer Brown All my reviews  (1)
Overall Rating
I have run these for years; probably 6 or 7 antenna in all, usually get the 3'. Always run power through them too; usually up to 400 watts or so. They really do good in a Diesel truck, easy fine tuning of SWR's-they really get out great. Have talked 30-40 miles on a good day. (Posted on January 3, 2013)

Easy Tuning

Review by DJ
Overall Rating
The antenna is very easy to tune. With 18 ft. of coax, I was able to get my SWR reading to an average of 1.5 on all 40 channels. It's durable too. (Posted on October 9, 2012)

Burnt up 2 of these.

Review by Blackduck 352
Overall Rating
I got one of these 2 years ago and had it for about 6 months when it oddly quit working. So I got another one and it did the same thing within a couple weeks. After examining them, I realized both of them were fried and completely useless. I was just using a barefoot stock Cobra 29 Classic CB radio so I know their radio didn’t fry them. Get a Firestik! It’s the best you can buy in my opinion. (Posted on September 26, 2012)

Great set-up

Review by Paul
Overall Rating
Ordered this antenna, the Chevrolet mount for my truck, fire ring coax cable and a heavy duty spring. Mounted them on the truck and dropped my SWR reading from 2.2 to 1.2. Great setup and a great company to deal with. They actually care about how their stuff works for their customers. (Posted on August 17, 2012)
