CD and AM/FM antennas

Does anyone know if there is an AM/FM antenna made that looks like a "firestick." I want to take the AM/FM antenna off the front fender and mount it behind the cab.
What I'm after is the duel CB antenna look, but one would be for the CB and the other for the AM/FM. What do you say guys? Dose such an animal exist?

why not just buy two firestiks, hook one up to the cb, and the other to your am/fm antenna cable? you'd have to reroute/extend the factory antenna cable, but that aint that hard. and am/fm radios arent picky about their antennas either.

Thanks Tracy. Thought about that but didn't think the AM/FM would work with a CB antenna.

yeah, I dont see why it wouldnt. at work we use a long piece of steele wire for an antenna, and it works better than the antenna that came with the stereo. lol. on any radio, recieving is the easy part. just about anything that will conduct electricity can be used as an antenna. transmitting is a completely different story. lol

Thanks Jeff. That's what I love about this web site. Even at 70, I still learn something new (to me) every day.
