Firestik FireRing CB Coax with FME - 9'
- Our most versatile coax cable has a ring-style connection that’s perfectly suited for low-profile installations
- Weather-resistant build and easy installation
- FME screw-off connection allows for easier cable routing through holes and/or firewalls
We knew Firestik was serious when they dubbed this coax the “FireRing”. After all, any reference to a song from the legendary Johnny Cash, no matter how subtle, means business. This 9’ coax cable is unique because it leaves your mount at a 90-degree angle, perfectly suited for low-profile, tight installations. The FME (for mobile equipment) end is reduced from 3/4" to 3/8" with a threaded connector, making it much easier to run your coax through narrow spots. It screws on and off with ease, making installation, drilling and cable routing much simpler. Hook this coax up to your rig and you’ll make Mr. Cash proud.
*This coax no longer includes the 3/8" x 24 x 1 1/4" FireRing bolt

The FireRing connector from Firestik is an extremely well-built, versatile and respected cable connection. The small amount of room that the FireRing utilizes make it the perfect choice for use under headliners or installations where space is limited.
The FireRing connector is weatherproof, low-profile and easy to install. The FireRing can be installed below or above the mount surface.

- Shielding coverage that averages 95% to protect against RF leaks and interference
- Polyvinyl center insulation for ruggedness and longevity.
- Performance that exceeds mil-spec requirements for 50 ohm RG-58A/U coax.
After reading some bad reviews about this cable I thought I’d try it anyway because of its low profile but unfortunately I ended up with the same problem that most people have with it, no good ground. After ohms testing it there was no separation between the antenna side and the ground side terminal of the ring. I believe there was a short in the wire somewhere. After scraping the fire ring and using a standard pl259 cable there was no issues, SWR was at 1.2. I don’t blame Right Channel Radios, I’ve always had great service from them, might have just been a bad cable. Nice idea with the fire ring but does not work.
Works great. Always reliable and easy to work with.
Delivery quick order exact couldn’t be better!
