I had (or think I still have) one similar to that one and yes you can get an adaptor to hook up a normal antennea. Some you can even get a regular microphone for it also to hook up.

With a normal antenna you should have the same range as any stock CB. With the built in though, you are limited. A friend had one and we were suprised to get 2 miles with it.

You can put an external antenna on that. It has a BNC antenna connector, so you would either need the antenna cable to have a BNC male connector on it, or an adapter from BNC to whatever end is on your antenna line.
