FEATURES, FUNCTIONS AND SPECIFICATIONS:
If you took the proven features and performance of the famous KW series antennas and added a unique tuning mechanism to the top, you would own the equivalent of a Firestik II, FS Series antenna. Aside from the ease of tuning, the patented design broadens the antennas bandwidth to keep SWR lower over more channels. The upper coil extension also increases the power handling capability of the antenna. If you want to see the Firestik II anatomy. All FS antennas are compatible with autos, trucks, vans, motorcycles and ATVs in a single antenna configuration when metallic ground plane is available. Or, they may be used in dual (co-phased) configuration on any vehicle made from any type of material. Like all CB antennas, the FS antennas should be fine-tuned (SWR) in their final mounting location. If you have ever tuned a non-tunable tip antenna, you will have a real appreciation for the FS antennas. To tune a FS antenna, you just pop-of the tip and turn the adjustment screw up or down as needed. All FS antennas exceed the requirements of any CB radio, new or old. Aside from the hi-performance loading coil that maximizes the transmit/receive functions of your CB, these top-loaded antennas will also receive the NOAA emergency weather alert and national weather broadcasts for radios with those features.
The FS antennas are 100% American made with 100% American materials. To maintain a balance between flexibility and ruggedness, we use a custom blended, glass fiber reinforced shaft. Each is wound with heavy insulated copper wire to prevent the oxidation and shorted windings often found on non-Firestik antennas. The tunable tip mechanism is made from rust-proof brass and has a rubber o-ring to hold the adjuster in place after tuning. Our 3/8-24 threaded base has a tapered contact point that works especially well with Firestik mounts and accessories. The tapered lug-nut effect transfers stress away from the threads and reduces the possibility of vibration induced loosening of the antenna in its mount. Each antenna is covered with a static reducing, water-tight sleeve containing UV and pigment stabilizers. For peek performance we recommend that you use one of our 18-foot Fire-Flex coaxial cables with these antennas.
All FS series antennas are factory bench tested for resonant frequency and overall quality. They are available in four (4) standard colors .. Black or White with a red tip, or Red or Blue with a white tip.
And dont forget ... ALL antennas, regardless of style or manufacturer, MUST be tuned after installation on the vehicle. Transmitting antennas are not plug-n-play devices.

FACTORY ADVICE NR 1:
These are ground-plane dependent antennas. They require a metallic counterpoise to perform properly. They are not suited for use on non-metallic (composite) verhicles or those with insufficient metal. They can be used to build a base station antenna if a ground-plane is provided. When used with a transmitter (versus a receiver) these antennas should be tested and tuned asross the radios operating frequency. Using an untested, untuned antenna for transmitting can damage the transmitters circuitry.
FACTORY ADVICE NR 2:
Groud-plane dependent antennas require mounting brackets and antenna stud mounts that are grounded to a chassis ground point. Powder coating, paint and or anodized surfaces are insulating coatings and must be removed down to the metal surface where ever a grounding point is required.
