Hi Craig

Welcome to Charlie Tango.

I would suggest the Sirio ML-145 antenna. 

https://www.nevadaradio.co.uk/product/sirio-ml-145-mag/

or even a springer/Orbitor style antenna

https://www.thunderpole.co.uk/large-cb-antennas/thunderpole-orbitor.html

Don't buy the smaller Orbitor/Springer style, I remember reading somewhere that they don't work so well due to the tight coils (but I could be wrong)

All the best

Ray 2290

I have the ML-145 with the Sirio 4000 aerial on it works well.
The ML-145 is the mag-mount and it has a PL fitting for the aerial to screw into witch comes in handy to screw my 2m/70cm aerial into as well.

Wilson 1000. Very durable quality, operates over large band width. Strong magnet, will not get knocked off your vehicle.

Plus one for the Wilson 1000 I have used mine for seven years now. Great bandwidth and performance.

Not particularly cheap but you get what you pay for.

Sirio 4000 here which I believe is the same performance as the 5000 but slightly cheaper due to plastic base cover rather than metal. But good quality.
So I saved myself a tenner 🤣
Sirio 145 pl mag mount.
Doesn't budge even over 70mph.

I did quite a bit of research before buying.
Wilson is way too much more money for my liking and quite a few report better performance from the Sirio.
I'm not saying the Sirio is better but both as both are considered top antennas.

Here's some other posts on here.

The Sirio is a big antenna but it screws off the mag mount.

And if you look at Knights electrocom website they state about the Sirio 4000.


"Probably the best antenna available - it will certainly outperform a Wilson!"

PostSubject: Thanks very much for your msg yeah think I’m going to go with this, the Wilson is a bit expensive for what it is. Where you from hope to speak on the radio waves soon.    Mobile antenna  Icon_minitimeThu Aug 18, 2022 8:32 pm

Yes the Wilson 1000 comes with the whip. The box isn't massive it just covers the mag mount.

Craig, buy both. Then you can give us a comparison test 👍🤣

Gary, regardless of which one is better, I imagine you would always plump for the Wilson for the name alone 🤔😁

Nige, I definitely think that the Sirio is an equivalent to the Wilson, maybe I should get one and change my name by deed poll!! 🤣🤣🤣
