NEED HELP with cb and antenna
 
I recently bought a cb (cobra 19 ultra III) and a 3 foot firestik antenna, these are the only things I got from him. what else do I need before the instal? also I've read that firestiks have their own mounting studs and are not universal is this true?

Your going to want an 18 foot coax cable to connect the radio and antenna, and then a location to mount the antenna. If your antenna looks like this one Firestik FS CB Antenna | Right Channel Radios any coax will do Amazon.com: FireStik K-8A 18 foot single antenna coax cable: Electronics. My firestik antenna worked with the cable that I bought from amazon shown here.

Theres a few different options for mounting the antenna but I use this one Teraflex 4997100 - TeraFlex CB Antenna Mount in Steel for 07-13 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec.

Your also going to want an swr meter to tune everything. I bought mine off the web, but I am sure radioshack or a truck stop would have them.

I dont think my antenna looks like that, I'll post pics of mine and maybe you can help me determine the mount and cable I need
