This Driver Extreme Heavy Duty Antenna Stud provides a strong connection between your antenna and coax, no deadlifts required. Made of chrome-plated machine brass, it can withstand even the harshest of weather conditions, making it a durable solution to boost your CB signal. Enjoy a stronger connection and reliable performance with this stud.
|Model / SKU:
|All-purpose CB use for all antennas, made stronger to get the job done with the longest of antennas.
|Accepts all fiberglass and center-load antennas with a 3/8" x 24 thread. SO-239 connection on the bottom is compatible with coax that has PL-259 barrel-style ends. Designed for 1/2" stud holes, which are the industry standard on all CB mounts.
|It's crucial to install the nylon washer between the metal nut and the ABS plastic top. If not, a short will occur. If installing on a flat surface without a mount, a 1/2" hole should be drilled.
Antenna, mount and coax not included
The importance of the stud mount cannot be overstated! The antenna stud mount acts as a bridge between the antenna and the coaxial feed line. Accordingly, it needs to allow for efficient transfer of your signals to and from the transceiver. If the stud mount doesn't perform that task efficiently, you end up with unneeded loss. And if that isn't enough, the stud mount must be strong enough to withstand the stress from an antenna subject to severe wind load and vibration.
Featuring chrome-plated machine brass, 5/8" hex stock and stainless steel hardware, the Driver Extreme HD Antenna Stud is the industry-standard for reliable mounting that won't come apart. With its heavy-duty 1" hex base, the Driver Extreme provides an exceptional level of security and performance that you can rely on. Don't be fooled by cheaper imitators!
Bigger bases was just what I was needing. Just got back from a 4 day trip on a very rough road, worked great. I've had to replace the smaller bases several times.
I purchased 2 of these because they looked like they were really tough. They are. I wasn’t aware I would have to change my coax cable though. I am currently running the fire ring coax. I wasn’t planning on re routing the antenna cable. But I will when I get some extra cash and time. I recommend these mounts for serious weather related issues vs standard fire ring mounts.
