CB Antenna

I have a Cobra 75 WX ST and am wanting to make sure I maximize its capabilities. I have searched around and found that the antenna and the way it is grounded seems to be very important. So my question is: What antenna woks best?
That is why it is called a short cut. If it was easy it would just be "the way."

Firesticks are very popular with those with CBs.

I don't know about other clubs, but out here in San Diego almost everyone has taken the time to get ham licensed and we use 2 Meter on many trips. Better sound, no interference, and if needed we can use the myriad repeaters around for very long distance.

I run a 3' Firestik (the kind without the external ground wire) on my 94 with the same CB. Mounted on a bracket over the license plate light and have had great results in the trails/parks in this area. Assuming that if I were to take the time to actually set it up properly with an SWR meter it would be even better!

x2 on the amateur radio license. It is easy to get a Technical rating and you get much better sound and clarity, not to mention the ability to call long distance for assistance.

I am going to mount an NGP Firestik in the hole for the factory antenna (since I never use the radio...)
