Thanks guys, I should've pointed out that I'm posting from OS so if your thinking, why doesn't this fool get off his arse and get down to his local radio shop and have a look for himself, is because am cb's aren't that popular here and anything associated with them is getting harder to find. (Quality components that is ) One company (that I know of) sells the Firestik brand, but are 1700 kms away........
So I'll run the 3 footer mounted on the tire mount. Cool, that's sorted. I've searched around (on fleabay) and noticed numerous mounts that I could use, then I see different connections on the coax, damn! Too many options lol.
Since I'm purchasing from the US and having it shipped over to me, I dont want to be buying the wrong combo.
So I'm looking at the Firestik 11 FS3-B3 or the Firestik FL-3, opinions??
Would the coax with the fire ring be more resistant to corrosion ( eg salt water spray) than the standard screw fitting?
And if so, what base would I use between coax and spring?
