NEW Firestik IBA-5 CB base antenna. The IBA-5 was primarily designed to be used from the inside of a building or structure. The main user of this product would be a CB'er who lives in an apartment or association area that restricts the use of outdoor antennas. Other uses may include single family residences, offices, and job-sites.
The IBA-5 may also be useful to hunters and campers (on the ground or roof of your RV) to establish a temporary communications center. This antenna is not meant to be a replacement for an outdoor base station antenna.
If you are allowed to set-up an outdoor base station antenna in your area you will probably benefit from doing so. In most cases the IBA-5 will not out-perform an externally mounted antenna. The complete assembly stands just over 5 feet (1.5m) tall.Assembly of the kit is fast and easy. Each kit includes a'bare-hands tunable tip' antenna (rated at 1000 watts), a partially pre-assembled base hub assembly, four 30 (76cm) metal base radials, and 18 feet (5.5m) of RG-58A/U Fire-Flex coax cable. The kit also include a couple of extra tuning screws that can be used in situations where SWR indicates insufficient ground plane. Complete assembly instructions are included.
