X2, Love it in the drive through, I also love the fact it goes over the headsets in some places.

Yeah that parking lot attendant topped it off. I never have a camera with me when funny crap like this happens, but finally I did. I actually gave my g-f the camera so she could turn it off but she decided to roll video which I thanked her for. I knew she is worth having around! My last antenna that broke for no apparent reason was hilarious too. Me and Dusty08 are driving in our trucks. He gets my attention and I look in my mirror to seem my antenna isn't there. It's just laying in the middle of the trail. Then Disty08 pulls out his old broken K40 out of his bed. It's held together with lots of electrical tape so it gets soemwhat of useable SWR reading. I pimped that the next 6 miles until my truck broke down, lol. Stupid fuel shut-off inertia switch!

I have one on an alon style mount, I will share mine as well, They do look a little out of place being 9ft off the back of a truck. I enjoy the looks.

I took my truck in last week to have some routine maintenance done. As the mechanic was pulling it into the garage, my CB hit the door, and started snapping. Made me laugh. All I have is a little 26" mag mount in the center of my roof.


By the way, that .357 vid you also have is badass!

Thanks dude, yeah that is me and my .357 mag revolver shooting at night. We had a mountain behind us so we were safe, (in case the R-F police are reading this). I should have gotten video of the other guns going off at night, they were badass!

Parking garages are always fun. There is this one car that is riced out and I think he has a really sensitive alarm. Whenever I idle past him with my exhaust, his alarm goes off. I think he moved to a different parking lot after it happened a couple of times.

Yeah, I play with it on the highway. Who doesn't? lol

That 102" whip is freaking huge!! Does it get annoying with it being on the drivers side when it's swinging around?
