Timothy Leonard
President Johnson 11

Took me 3 minutes to figure out control options.
Already have a Wilson mag mount antenna. Drove to open area to turn in antenna. All reading from channel 1-20- and-40 under 1.5..
Channel 1to 20 was 1. Channel 40 was 1.3.
Doesn't get any better than that.

Great products, shipping, etc..

I have a 2018 Ram 3500 and bought my entire rig from I got a President Johnson ll CB, President Iowa antenna, 9 foot firestik fire ring coax antenna, dodge ram CB antenna hood mount 2009+, firestik antenna quick disconnect, 3 pin CB cigarette power adapter and a SWR meter with jumper cable. YouTube shows how to run the cox through the firewall on a 4th gen Ram with auto transmission. Right Channel Radios has videos on how to tune the antenna with the SWR meter. I did shorten/splice then power cord to make it neater. Fast shipping and great packaging of the product. Very happy overall. Wish there was a customer section where pictures could be uploaded for potential customers to see how others set up their systems.
