I saw those skins on ebay and asked the seller a question a few weeks ago. They said that it would more than likely block the light from the face plate. They didn't say if the function letters would show through or not. I didn't get a good feel about them but for $10, try one and let me know!

Wow cool! I just got my Wilson 5000 mag mount today but still waiting to get my radio back from Preacherman. Not sure if a simple peak and tune will make it that far though. I wonder where in Running Springs "Handyman" is since most of that town is tucked away in the mountains. There are a few house...

So will the aluminum skin act as a ground plane or do I even need to worry about it? I'm still confused about groundplanes! :oops: I probably ditch the Firestik but I'll try it for now. Thanks again.

hmm...not sure about ground plane, the entire RV is fiberglass. Obviously the more metal, the better the plane. But for sure you'd need to ground the antenna mount, which im sure you are already aware of. Actually, the entire outer shell is aluminum minus the roof. What do I ground the antenna moun...

A Firestik is what I have. I bought it for my truck before I knew better! Or should I say, before I found this site! Truck is now getting a Wilson 5000. It was cheap and seems to work good enough since I'm not pushing a lot of power through it. As for the ladder mount. I would if I had a ladder! I h...

Hippie beer for me! I have a nice little brew pub near home that I frequent way to often and the wife and I love to find local breweries whenever we travel. Even made my own batch once that came out pretty good. A Hefeweizen. Next batch will be an IPA.

Mounting on an RV.

I've got me a little 24ft travel trailer with aluminum sides and a rubber roof. I want to install another CB so I can communicate with camp while I'm out hunting in my truck. I'll be using a standard 3ft Firestik. Anything special I need to consider besides mounting a bracket to the top or side of t...

Another Cobra 29 question(s)

I just bought a Cobra 29 WXNWST. I'd like to get it peaked and tuned. Having never done this before, I don't know what to look for or expect. Should I find a local shop to do the work or send it to one of the forum sponsors on here? Also, I read that the sound tracker must be disabled to perform any...

Hope I'm not hijacking the thread but what is the difference between the 78LTW and the 78ELITE? Is it just the color difference? The price is attractive right now! Color difference, actual backlit panel instead of backlit controls, different stock mic... Anything I missed here? Thanks. Does anyone ...
