CAC1-COMBO Review By: James F. on 04/30/2014
  • Product Review: I purchased this mount and mounted a Stryker antenna on it. After a bit over two years of use, this past Sunday I noticed the antenna was hanging out at an odd angle. I stopped, thinking that someone may have attempted to steal my antenna. Instead I discovered that the aluminum was fatigued right at the tab where the bolt hole goes thru it. The top tab was completely broken through, and the bottom tab was almost through also. If it had broken clear through at highway speed, I could have very easily lost an antenna that is well over 100.00, in value. This bracket is very nice for a Cascadia, but should be made out of a stronger material than aluminum, or at least reinforced around the bolt hole tabs where they mount to the door.

    *IMPORTANT* Walcott CB does not suggest using a Stryker antenna with this mount. We commonly use the Predator 10K 22\" shaft antenna and Firestik FS5 without any breakage problems.
  • Pros: Good fit for the Cascadia which is notorious for having useless factory antenna and coax systems.
  • Cons: NOT STRONG ENOUGH MATERIAL USED IN CONSTRUCTION OF THIS BRACKET! I CANNOT RECOMMEND IT, UNTIL IT IS STRENGTHENED!

CAC1-COMBO Review By: Jason - Walcott Radio Employee on 12/20/2013
  • Product Review: We've installed a few hundred of these mounts and so far they've proven to be the best option for the Cascadia.

    The bracket installs easilly using a torx bit to remove the stock bolts and an allen bit for the replacements.

    Top loaded antennas like the Firestik FS5 or Predator 10K with the 17 or 22 inch shaft work best to avoid high SWR from reflection.

    It's common to need to lean the antenna forward at around a 20 degree angle due to reflection.
  • Pros: The best solution for Freightliner Cascadia trucks and it works with any antenna.
  • Cons: Due to the placement being so low, reflection can occur requiring the antenna to be leaned forward.

Dear Walcott CB, I just wanted to extend a big thank you for your services. I purchased a Galaxy echo mic and some RG8/U-95 coax and my friends tell me my radio never sounded better. Your techs did a nice job in wiring it for me. I would recommend the Galaxy mic to anyone who asks. Keep up the good work and when I am in need of supplies for my Uniden Washington, you can bet I will be a returning customer.Thanks again. Best Regards, Bob DeLuca, aka Stingray Webster, MA

Thanks, You guys are HUGE!!! And you ROCK! Thanks for being so very proffessional. I ordered a antenna from *********** and it never came. They refunded my $$ but i think they are "fishy". They said UPS lost the package, but gave me a fed ex tracking #! I LOVE you guys
