Basic Through-the-Glass CB Antenna Kit
- Small size offers limited range, ideal for use within 50 yards
- Low profile antenna that's easy to install
This through-the-glass CB antenna kit has a low profile, resembles a cellular booster antenna, and is incredibly easy to install. However, its small size is the trade-off for an extremely limited range. The small wire whip should provide enough range to communicate with the friends you're caravanning with 50 yards away, but not much more. If it's possible to mount a standard 3' or 4' CB antenna, your range will be greatly increased. If not, this kit is a perfect solution, so long as your friends don't get too far ahead.
Note: Antenna may differ slightly from picture.
|Model / SKU:||AUCBGM|
|Recommended for:||Low-profile, easy installations for short-range communication needs (i.e. less than 1/4 mile). For slightly better range in an on-glass kit, we recommend the ProComm VCBGM kit, which uses a fiberglass whip. For reliable CB communications of any distance, we strongly recommend using a traditionally mounted fiberglass, center-load or magentic antenna if possible.|
|Notable Features:||Low Profile Install, Cellular Look, Easy Installation, Approximately 2' Tall|

The antenna that I bought looks great on my 2004 Dodge Dakota, but lacks the strength needed to transmit and receive CB communications clearly, even at a short distance of 20 feet. The weather however comes in great. Also the external mount did not come with the necessary double sided tape to attach the antenna to the window.
- Installation was a 5, it was super easy and easy to tune
- Appearance is a 5, it looks great and it isn't gaudy
- Function ability is a 1, because it just doesn't work like a CB antenna should
- Price was a 4, it was cheap for an antenna which is probably why it doesn't work well.
