Fire Sticks

Does anybody know a good site that has fire sticks for cheap and cheap shipping? I have found 2 sites that have fire sticks for $20 a piece but there shipping was out ragious, to ship 2 of them it was $50.

Any ideas?

I dont know where the nearest truck stop is. Im too close to Minneapolis to have truck stops near by. I saw they had some at Radio shack (not firesticks but RS brand) but I need a CB and a Scanner antenna that look the same. Oh and I dont think I will find a scanner antenna here in MN considering they are illegal.

Yea I wish scanners were legal. I believe you can get a permit to make scanners legal to carry in your vehicle.

a long poster tube would work awesome for shipping, or the packaging to a line of fire LED strip

I found a website called CBworld.com and they have them, and have resonable shipping. It was like $41 for a CB antenna and a Scanner antenna shipped. I am waiting to hear back from them on whether I can get a 4 foot scanner antenna. If I cant ill get 3 footers.

Right now I have a magnet mount antenna sitting in middle-back of my roof, and it looks ghey...

Oh and that CB mount I told you about. Yeah it didnt turn out the way I wanted it, so Im not going to brag about it. It looks really sh!tty.
