I'm trying to find a new antenna for my mobile so I figured this would be a good way to choose. The choices are ones that I might go with but not sure yet.

I've used so many antennas. Coily, Stargun, McNasty, Al Capone, 2 Watt, 55, fighting sticks.................The Best thus far has been the 10K for quality, weight, and tx/rx

How did I miss this poll? :-x

Well, "Other" isn't listed...so I didn't vote. Everyone talks highly of the 10k, but I've yet to see anyone compare it (even unscientifically) to the 102" whip...which I know for a fact the Everhardt Tiger SOTT-5' will out perform. I've run numberous tests over the years using the 102" as the base antenna to beat.

I have tested the 10K against the 102" whip. Was posted on another site...

I also did the test useing the Wilson 5000, the Mr.Coily Dual Coil 22" shaft antenna, the Monkey Made, the Megatron, (which is a Monkey Made Clone) And a Radio Shack antenna...

In every case...The Predator 10K always was the most broad banded antenna, and tuned the lowest, and easiest...All test were done using a Dosy Meter, and a radio shack meter, a field strength meter, and a mfj 259b antenna analyzer...

All antennas were similar in size's, number of coils, and shaft lengths. (except for the 102" whip, Predator doesn't make anything close to 102" tall)

Over all best preforming antenna was the Predator 10K, 27" shaft Dual Coil antenna. Tuned flat across all 40 channels, on mfj. 100% Match efficiency, X=0 on all 40 channels...

Also tested were the other Predator 10K configurations, like the Single Coil, the 22", 17", 12", and 9" shaft's...All did well, but the 27" tuned the best.

As for the antenna which came in a close second, other than Predator. Was the Mr.Coily.

Best I could get the 102" whip to tune, was around 1.2 swr. Which from what I've seen, most cant get a 102" to tune lower than 1.3...

102" whips are just fine if your sitting still. But run down the highway @ 60 MPH, and watch that **Censored** bend-over backwards! Along with the swr!

The Heavy gluteus maxims Monkey Made's wont bend at all, not even @ 150 MPH down the freeway...But they also wont talk as good either.

But, you don't have to take my word for it...talk to anyone who use to run whips, but finally decided to switch to the 10K! :wink:

By the way...I do alot of the testing of the Predators, before they ever go to market...The antennas which are for sale right now, are some of the best antennas available. Currently, I have a couple of different Predator's I'm testing, and different size diameter's of shafts...And still playing around with a "Top-Hat" or Ground Plane kit, made by Predator, for Predator 10K's...

Only way to find out if the Predator 10K is for you...is to give one a try!

Well, why not? The 102" whip mounted on your car will exibit 0, ZERO dBd gain.... because it's a half-wave dipole [the other half is the car] With coils comes loss. That's just a rule of thumb. So what's this about a SCOTT antenna?

My choice isn't listed so hear is my favorite (I am SO ready for the crap from all you....heehee). I messed up my little wil that I used to run so I went to a truck stop and bought this Cobra 1000 mag mount. It has this big coil cased in glass and filled with oil. So far, it is the best antenna I have run hands down on my van. But, it is only like my second antenna I have tried. My little wil had to be totally adjusted before I could even come close to 1.5 on my SWR. This Cobra went straight to 1.3 across the board without modification upon hook-up.

Just my 2 cents.

Why would any one give you **Censored** about that snow man?
For one; all of us at one time or another got suckered into a bad purchase on our radio or anntena. You will learn, Just Kidding

I used to run a 29LTD classic and the same antenna you run and it worked very well. As long as you are running a duck radio with no power behind it. It really is a good set up. They sound good and have great ears. Nothing wrong with that.

JJD, all the tuning info' is good. But I must have missed the TX/RX difference it made over the 102" whip. :-? My Tiger is flat SWR from 26.5150-27.9950 + and out performed both TX/RX to the 102" Whip hands down (also posted in another thread). I'm leary of investing $100 in another antenna that barely beats the 102" whip.

And Falcon, I don't mind the 102" whip...it just isn't my favorite. Why would it be when I know for a fact there are better performers out there? Just because it looks good in theory, doesn't mean it's fact.

It's not in the poll, but my favorite so far is a K-40 with a mag mount. Not saying it out performs anything else, but for my application it's the cats *ss. Low swr all over the channels and a quarer turn spins it off for the car wash or garage. Keep in mind that all I've ever had before this was twin sticks on the big trucks and a Cobra mag and a Max Rad.
I'd like to try a 10K or Monkey Made one day, but 'til then the K 40 is gonna be just fine.

I totally agree, especially for mobile, I like the 10k and the coily.

I like the 102" whip for just being a regular old antenna. I don't run any mobile, so it's pretty much what I use. If there's a strong wind, I can watch my SWRs jump up and down as the whips move in the wind. For mobile, solid, wide bandwidth antennas would be great, and that's why the 10k is great! I just wouldn't run it as a base simply because it's a loaded coil antenna. Why have any dB loss when you can have none?

I'll have to go back when I have some time, and check the TX/RX differences between the 102" and the 10K...been over a year since I did those comparisons...

As for spending $100 for a 10K...Thats just not so, unless someone takes you to the cleaner's! Clay's sells them for under $60, and so does John's Cb. Cant give the web address here for Clays, because it will get censored out...

Now although I have yet to do a install, where I couldn't get a 10K to tune better than any other antenna, I have herd of some guys that didn't have very much luck with them...Not sure why, unless they were trying to mount the 10K in a spot that just wasn't the right place for the antenna to begin with...

It is Definitely a 10K world!

I've used quite a few antennas, fiberglass, 102" whip, $20 truck stop antennas, etc., and the 10k performs best hands down! I've never had an antenna before that does between 1.0-1.1 VSWR all the time!

Can the 10k be put on a spring or is the wind drag to much...??

I like the 102" because it has the 6" spring and can handle low hung limbs etc without being torn off.....

I am getting 1.0-1.1 SWR with mine...

I like the 102" because it has the 6" spring and can handle low hung limbs etc without being torn off.....

I am getting 1.0-1.1 SWR with mine...
NO! If you put a Predator 10K, or anyother Large Coil Type antenna on a spring, the wind drag would be so bad, all it would do, is flop around like a fish out of water! :shock:

Springs only work on "stick type" antennas....
