After trying several setups my best results have been with a door mounted 5 foot Francis antenna, hand made cable, and a black Astatic mic. The case is larger than most, but I hung mine (will upload photos soon.) I'm occasionally tempted to have the radio tuned and tweaked but I've never really had a reason.
Antennas I've tried: Firestik, Wilson oil cooled, stock (of course) and Cobra-the one with the coil inside a plastic see through can. Francis was recommended by an old timer who said those fancy high power antennae were inefficient for a stock radio. I don't know about the reasoning, but I get out a lot farther and it takes a beating from trees without breaking.
Update 6/25: Still out on the road so I can't inspect the replacement radio for damage. I have found that on the original radio, the Mic Gain knob is also bent.
Radio arrived in a timely manner and the outer packaging looked perfect and undamaged. When I got the radio out of the box, I found that the combination volume and squelch knob was bent/off center. I feel that almost $200 is too much to pay for a visibly damaged or bent control knob.
Could I have taken it to a CB shop and had it fixed? Sure, but why? This is supposed to be brand new and I don't feel like it's my responsibility to pay for repairs to it when all I did was unpack it.
I do have to say, I really appreciate the fact that they are shipping the replacement before I ship this one back.
