    Autozone Stubby Antenna (Pictures)

    I have searched some to find what guys are using for stubby antennas and found autozone as a possibility.  I picked one up today and for others interested I thought I would snap some pictures.  The base tapers well.  This is their carbon fiber version at $15.99.  The plain was $8.99.

    The last picture just shows a size comparison between the stock to stubby.

    Thanks for the info! I have been wanting to do this. How much does the reception suffer?

    See,, I have always leaned more towards productive than looks.  Thats why I installed mirrors so I can actually see what I need to behind meand to the side.  I was looking for a antenna UPGRADE to improve the reception.
    But then In 1975 I installed a 23 channel CB radio on my 1975 Honda CB550 with a 102 inch fiberglass antenna, with a 200 watt linear amplifier in trunk.

    Looks good and will be much less prone to breakage

    I've just fitted one of these  ( 4.7" ), much better reception and no longer `flaps' about at speed  :028: .
    Took just a minute to swap over and only  cost 4.09.  :152:
    The existing antenna unscrews
    anti-clockwise,  just hold secure at its base.   Below is the Link for `Fleabay'   You can
    order different sizes.
