looking for dual cb antenna mount
I'm looking for a way to mount two CB antennas on back of my yj. Anyone seen any kits made for this?

He does not make one for the YJ specifically (JK &TJ looks like), but I think he can make one that is opposite of the normal mount. Might want to email him. I have a mount for my JK I love.

No farther than you will be able to get the antennas apart you are going to have a hell of a time matching them. Don't forget the co-phasing harness.

In order to get dual antennas to work properly with a CB they "should" be 8 feet apart, hard to do on a four wheeler. Just use one, it's cheaper and way easier to get it to work properly.

Yeah I know, id seen a dual setup, with one antenna for CB and one for radio.

Ya. But you said 2 cb antennas, what you need is a cb Antenna and an am-fm antenna.

Bubbas94yj 12-06-2012 05:15 PM

I'm pretty new to CBs, but don't they make kits to run am /fm through CB antenna?

I bought a dual antenna kit couple wks ago and I wanta mount it on Jeep. I had heard all that about the antennas couldn't be to close, but thought I could hook up 1 for radio. Do I got that all wrong?

You cannot have 2 (or more) antennas that transmit simultaniously that close. If one recieves, or they are used at seperate times, you can mount them that close. Usually best to mount everything by itself, though.

1 AM/FM or scanner & 1 transciever is OK
2 different transcievers is OK (CB & HAM), but may not be ideal (or be used at the same time, either/or kind of deal)
and a scanner & AM would be fine
2 cophased antennas of nearly any band would not be OK
