Hi I asked a while for advice about a good setup for a car and was going for a Crt Xenon and a Siro Ml aerial. I've just started on the Tippers and wondered if that aerial is still OK or would someone suggest another? It doesn't really need much range to be fair.

Hi Hamish

Most of the tipper lorries I see around Gatwick airport have a Springer or mini springer on the cab. I think they are used because it's cheap as chips to replace after hiting trees and getting bent out of shape. Very Happy

Hope this helps

It is the same around here, Ray. There are loads of quarries and consequently loads of tippers and most are running springer antennas these days. They use the cb to talk to the shovel drivers, when they are being loaded with chatter.

There are better antennas, Haggis, but the springer is very robust and serves its purpose.👍

I have a springer on my x5 on the roof bar and it has had some hammering in car park with Hight signs but still standing and not even bent at all.
Local Tesco has a 2 tear car park and it hits every joist when i go in there lol.

Thanks for your replies lads. I will have a look at springers I take it they are made by one company?

I think all the CB shops do a version of the Springer/Stinger/Orbitor antenna. Check out Thunderpole, Moonraker, 4x4CB etc
