    They can also go on the hood ;)


    I mean the real solution is a nice roof or rack one. But same goes for CB. A lot of bad information on antenas and ground planes

    Firestick.com actually has a ton of articles, and some of them are quite good, about all that stuff. Believe me, I went though all this a month ago when I transitioned from my mag mount CB antenna to the Firestick on the front of my ARB. Had a ton of issues getting that shit dialed in so ended up reading about all that.

    For sure. The research is key.

    Basically electrical continuity and giant sheets of metal that act as reflectors are your friend

    Really my ham one is 18" tall. So if I'm tunneling through trees, I used to put it right on my hood. My roof was taller

    PS midland makes a super kick ass gmrs mobile radio now with 40-50 watts. Huge power. Plus if you have kids or family , that ticket covers everyone legally and is really just the 70cm ham band which works great in the trees
