Default Re: Homemade Uniden CB antenna replacement

The optimal antenna length (1/4 wavelength) for the cb frequencies is 108 inches, not very practical for a handheld, so it would need some sort of loading coil to have it shorter and still be efficient. I remember the RadioShack handhelds used a telescopic center load antenna. The did have a short rubber (about 10") antenna available, I think the whole length was a coil
Not sure if this is any help.
