The Wilson 1000 outperforms all other fiberglass, base-loaded and center-loaded antennas, making it our top recommendation for best-in-class range! Constructed with 10-gauge windings and a high-impact thermoplastic shell, this antenna is designed to survive years of tough use. 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. The roof mount Wilson 1000 is an excellent choice for permanently mounting a high-performance antenna on the roof of your car, truck or commercial vehicle.

*Please Note: This is the Wilson roof mount antenna and NOT the Wilson magnet mount antenna. This antenna requires drilling for installation. 

Model / SKU:Wilson W1000 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 using a 4-watt stock CB radio, we recommend this antenna over the more expensive Wilson 5000. The 1000 is cheaper and will provide similar transmit and receive performance. Paying more 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, Rated for 3,000 Watts
Compatible with:
All CB radios. For antenna mounting, you'll need to drill a hole in the roof and have access to the area below the mounting surface. 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.

The Wilson 1000 is one of the most rugged antennas you can buy. It's made with Mobay's thermoplastic, which costs a bit more but is the best material available. Accordingly, it comes with a two-year warranty and is guaranteed to outperform any base-loaded CB mobile antenna (except the Wilson 5000) or your money back! (Please see manufacturer's website for details.) The Wilson 1000's higher performance is a result of several new design developments that bring you the most powerful CB base-loaded antenna available in its price range.

Awesome antenna

Great product and great service as always. Mounted on my 93 Chevy. Works great.

Best antenna on the market.

Best antenna on the market. All I use on three trucks for the last 15 years.

I should have not second guessed myself.

I live down in Souther Arizona 15 miles off the Mexico / AZ border. I have a Cobra 29 LTD Classic that has been tuned and a small box knowing I needed all I could get out of the radio . I started with a Wilson little Wil and I could not get anything with it (As the salesmen said I would). I could not even get the SWR close to 1.5 on low or high. I use to run a Wilson 1000 years ago with another radio so I decided to go back to it and trimmed it with the SWR and I average 1.25 max on 40 1.0 on 1.... Skip all the way to Florida but average day is about 15 - 20 miles down here in nowwhere's ville. Now I need to find a bigger add-on box for my power.

Great antenna

Roof mounted the antenna on my 99’ Dodge Quad Cab and the installation turned out great. Easily removable and works very well
