Guess I am stuck in the past. I have always had a CB and do keep it on the ch 19 good buddy. I have a 3ft non ground plain firestick ant., this does not need anything metal to reflect off of. I installed the ant. mounting bracket half way between the drivers window and roof. That gave me about 2/3 of ant. above the roof line. On the inside, the bolts came through in one of the cubbies so hiding that was easy.
