What would you guys say is the best mobile antenna because there are so many makes and brands from different countries.
I know you guys are veterans and have had every antenna going and put them all through their paces.
So it's just a case of reading opinions, I know Sirio have decent antennas and have been going for years.
Is Sirio the best?

Thank you

Ps. A virus gets everywhere so hopefully on cb :-)

Sirio is about as good as it gets.
I've got some decent distances without skip. (I don't count skip because you are very much at the mercy of propagation)

Possibly the best (On a hill) would be Devon from the very North of Nottinghamshire

I'm thinking of getting the Sirio 5000 turbo with the 145 magmount base.
Well if it get out good just by itself then the skip is going to be a bonus.
Thank you for replying.

Did you get the Sirio 5000 in the end. I recently got the perfomer 5000 led and 145 magmount and I am very happy with it.

I bought the Sirio 5000 PL and the 145 magmount. It's receive is really good and so is the transmit.
