CB Antenna Splitter

I am looking at getting a Firestik Antenna with a splitter to get the AM/FM off the same antenna. I put wing protectors on which covered up the old antenna that was worn out...Does anyone have this splitter and is it wourth it?

I had one, took it out. When I hook-up a SWR meter it was reading way low i.e. CB was not transmitting. took it off and now it was way high. I've obviously got huge CB problems; however, the splitter wasn't helping. I say it's not worth it, but the firestik company seems to be on point with their products. Seems odd that they would have a sub-par product.

I had one too. I had terrible experience with it as well. Couldn't get the same reception, and any time I keyed the cb mike with the radio on, I would get horrid feedback.

I just decided to go without radio. I'll probably switch to using satelite at some point.
