CAC1-COMBO Review, Written By on Wed, Apr 30, 2014

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!

Jason - Walcott CB

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.

What Customers are Saying...

I recently ordered a mic from you. The process was very simple. You had what I wanted. I recieved my order VERY quickly. I am a ham operator and have shopped most of the major dealers and no one has handled my request as fast as you did and at a reasonable price.This is all mentioned as my needs sometime become quite expensive. To cut to the chase, I will shop you first from now on for my radio needs

I have been trucking for 15 years and this has been and still is the best cb radio store in the country! Most of the other ones are chop shops with little to no invintory with some wanabe tech thats nothing more than a parts changer. I am looking forward to doing business with you again in the future. Thank you.
-- Randy E.
I had questions on the parts I was ordering. Called your store and order everything on the phone. Just received yesterday 5/10 as promissed. Very pleased with your service. Thanks for the follow up. I will recommend your company to my friends. Redgards, Scott Dixon

Just wanted to thank you for your service on this order. I received the replacement slip seat box and speaker, and also the correct size slip seat box cover earlier this week, in two shipments. The cover was the correct size this time (I sent the smaller one back with the supplied ground label), but more importantly, the replacement slip seat box and speaker were received in beautiful condition; while the first slip seat box was shipped in just the manufacturer's box, with no additional shipping box or material, and the speaker rattling around inside it, the second shipment was packed with bubble material in addition to an exterior shipping carton. Had the original shipment been packed in the same manner the replacement was, I'm sure there would have been no damage whatsoever. UPS came on 4/27 and picked up the original carton with the damaged slip seat box and speaker enclosed. Again, thank you for taking a personal interest in this oder and for resolving it so efficiently. I hope to do business with Walcott again, and will make an effort to stop in when I next get out to the Iowa 80 area. Sincerely, Doug Lyons
