Hello all, Has anyone here mounted a C.B. Antenna on thier E? I want to put my radio in but I really dont want to use a magnetic mount on the roof and I would like to keep it at the rear of the E. Thanks all. Be Safe, Dave

I used a window mount antenna on my old Wrangler.

Here's a similar one at Radio Shack.

Mine worked well enough.
Not as good as a big whip antenna, but it was fine for line of sight on the freeway.

I now use one of these...Midland Portable Handheld.

So far it works great and it totally portable or can be hooked up to a larger antenna and run on 12V.
I found it on clearance at Wally-World for 29 bucks.
It even has full weatherband coverage.

:grin:

I put two mag mount antennas on the roof of my E. I used a round cut out just larger than the magnetic bases. I used this plastic envelope stuff... I dont know what its called but is the packaging that fed-ex and some other packing companies use... I hope you know what i'm talking about. It looks like paper but you can't really tear it. It is like really really thin plastic. It hasn't scratched anything yet... and nothing has come off yet either... the other day I was very bad and pushed the E up to almost 100 and everything held tight... good luck
