Firestik IBA-5 base antenna

18' Fire-Flex coax cable

Firestik Antenna Mounting Kit: The IBA-5 was primarily designed for use inside a building or structure. The main user of this product would be a CB customer who lives in an apartment or association area that restricts the use of outdoor antennas. Other uses may include single-family residences, offices and job sites. The IBA-5 can also be useful to hunters and campers (on the ground or roof of your RV) to establish a temporary communications center. However, this antenna is not meant to be a replacement for an outdoor base station antenna. If you're allowed to set up an outdoor base station antenna in your area, you will probably benefit from doing so. In most cases, the IBA-5 will not out-perform an externally mounted antenna, so if you seek maximum performance and are allowed to use an external antenna, we recommend that you do so.

The complete assembly stands just over 5' (1.5m) tall. Assembly of the kit is fast and easy. Each kit includes a bare-hands tunable tip antenna (rated at 1,000 watts), a partially pre-assembled base hub assembly, four 30" (76cm) radials, and 18' (5.5m) of RG-58A/U Fire-Flex coax cable. We also include a couple of extra tuning screws that can be used in situations where SWR indicates insufficient ground plane. Complete assembly instructions are included.


  • Easily set up an indoor antenna
  • Screw-on coax connection
  • Five-year antenna warranty; one-year component warranty

I get a 1.4 on my big tool bog. And 1.9 on my garage roof. It works for me.

Worked great for me

I had terrible receive performance in my new location until I got this antenna. Now I'm getting signals on the first floor, that I never got at my previous place on the third floor. A well made product too.

Michael Tharp
Great product!

Works very well for my application. Used for DXing on vacation 9 floors up in condo. Tuned easily and nice quality. Skip is up and picked up stations in Maine, NY, Ontario and Pennsylvania the other day. One heard me but couldn’t keep contact. Just fun listening with it.
