The Wilson 500 is a step up from the basic 36" Wilson Little Wil, but isn't as long or as high-performing as the 62" Wilson 1000 or 5000. This makes the Wilson 500 a perfect compromise for price, length and performance.

The Wilson 500 is made with a heavy-duty coil that uses 12-gauge copper wire in order to eliminate the resistive heat losses in the coil. Heavy-duty, high-impact thermoplastics ensure a quality product and years of durable performance. The Wilson 500 is also guaranteed to perform better than any other antenna (except the Wilson 1000 and 5000) or your money back!

  • 54" stainless steel whip
  • Magnetic mount base
  • 2,000 watt power rating
  • Made with high-impact thermoplastic

Excellent for 10-meters

Just completed a road trip from Phoenix to Seattle. Worked many DX contacts along the way with an old HTX-100 (barefoot at 25 watts) and this Wilson 500 (cut 3-inches off for 10m). Received great signal reports and even worked contacts in Japan and Mexico City. 10m is starting to blossom again. HIGHLY recommend this antenna if you're looking for a good 10m magnet-mount. -- N7AVS

Nice 10 meter mobile antenna

Works great for a small antenna that's easy on/off the car.
