The Wilson 5000 outperforms all other fiberglass, base-loaded and center-loaded antennas, making it our top recommendation for best-in-class range! Featuring a unique floating coil, the antenna is designed to endure extreme winter icing so it won't freeze up or stop working in severe weather. Rated for 5,000 watts AM and 20,000 SSB, the Wilson 5000 can handle serious, high-powered radios. The screw-off coil allows the antenna to separate at the coax-wired base for convenience when entering low-clearance areas or for temporary antenna storage. This roof mount Wilson 5000 is a great choice for permanently mounting a high-performance CB antenna on the roof of your car, truck or commercial vehicle.

Please Note: This is the Wilson roof antenna, NOT the Wilson magnet mount antenna. Drilling required during installation.

Model / SKU:Wilson W5000 RT-BK
Recommended for:High-performance, long-range CB use. Roof mount is ideal for permanently mounting the antenna to the roof of cars, trucks or commercial vehicles. If you're using a 4-watt stock CB radio, we recommend the Wilson 1000 roof CB antenna over the more expensive Wilson 5000. The 1000 is cheaper and will provide similar transmit and receive performance. The additional price 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, Reliable in Severe Weather
Rated to 5,000 Watts AM / 20,000 SSB
Compatible with:
All CB radios. To mount this antenna, you'll need to drill a hole in the roof of your vehicle and access the mounting surface from below. For installation with vehicle headliners, the headliner must be removed prior to drilling. The coax cable connects to the antenna at a low angle, so it's possible to re-install the headliner without noticing the coax or antenna mount post-install.
