If magnet mounts antennas had their own Super Bowl, this is the rig that would come home with the ring. The Wilson 5000 Magnet is a convenient, reliable and best-in-class antenna, with a unique floating coil designed to withstand severe weather and endure winter icing. This mag will stay put at highway speeds, an ideal choice for cars, trucks or commercial use. Rated for 5,000 watts AM and 20,000 SSB, this rig can handle serious, high-powered radios. The screw-off coil allows the antenna to separate at the coax-wired base for convenience entering low-clearance areas or for temporary antenna storage. Touchdooooown, Wilson!   

Model / SKU:Wilson W5000 MAG-BK
Recommended for:High-performance, long-range CB use for individuals wanting an easy installation on cars, trucks or commercial vehicles. If you're using a 4-watt stock CB radio, we recommend the Wilson 1000 magnet CB antenna over the more expensive Wilson 5000. The 1000 is cheaper and will provide similar transmit and receive performance. The additional price 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.

Rated to 5,000 Watts AM / 20,000 SSB

My Wilson 5000

I recieved my antenna quickly during the holidays and paired it with my Sky Walker tuned Ranger RCI-69FFB4 radio,which also arrived in time for the holidays. Both items make a combo that's unbeatable in my book. The antenna held fine at 75 mph. and stayed put thru multiple drive thru windows. And the radio...Oh boy ...check one out ....Thanks Skywalker Radios.
