Apologize if this has been beat on before, but does size matter...CB antennas that is. I just installed a CB with a 4' firestick and wish Id have bought a 3'. I was thinking the 4 with a FStick spring would allow for easy tipping down when pulling into the garage. That Firestick "HD spring" is pretty light and a 4' antenna and spring will be whipping all over and beat the soft top to death along the bow so I took the spring off. So now its a 4' and no spring, works great but to tall. Would a 3' really degrade transmission quality out in mountain forested areas?
