Sirio GPE-27 5/8 Wave Vertical Base Antenna





GPE-27: This is a good antenna for the novice CB’er just getting his feet wet in CB Radio. Or for the CB’er that is wanting to try out the advantages of an aluminum antenna over the fiberglass one’s. Or even for the longtime CB’er who just needs a good 5/8 wave antenna, but not the “Big Power” handling. It’s light, and easy to set up. Best feature is it doesn’t break the bank!
