absolutely.. but I think most every question has been answered in the CB realm lately. I've probably read every post on CB mounts there is at WF.

well i have a question. No more fighting about which brand to buy. I just want an idea of what antenna is best. I have decided on a Uniden P68XL through Mini 8 wiring ( i am of teh school of thought that I will use all 18 ft....i think its 18 ft), and mount the antenna above the left brake light. I am leaning towards using an everhardt antenna... but I need to know which one to get...

I want 3 or 4 feet long. But whats the deal with 3/4 wave vs 1 1/2 wave cs 1 wave. Which one is gonna give me the most range???

Length is totally dependant on what you can handle. A 3 foot will fit inside the average garage with little to no problem. If you don't have a garage and don't wheel in low overhanging brush go with the 4 foot as it will have the better range then the 3 foot. But at the cost of smacking it into things if you wheel in the trees.
The Everhardt with the absolute best range would be the SOTT series (in the fibreglass ant.) but at the cost of not having a weather band. If you don't use weather then this is not a problem. If you do use weather then you can run the Super Tiger (STT) which is a 1 wave antenna that has weather band and works great. Its what I run, 4 foot on the road and 3 foot when wheeling.
The 3/4 wave Super Flex is just that. An antenna to run if you wheel in low hanging trees or your antenna gets banged around a lot. I have a friend in WA state that runs it. Great antenna if you need the flexy. But its hand tune only as it does not come in a tunable tip model. But it does have weather band.
Notice how the spring has not even come into play yet.

Another great antenna is the Wilson silver load.
