The Firestik 2M15 series, 2 meter amateur antennas are little quarter wave wonders. By using top quality materials, proven antenna knowledge and their patented tunable tip design, they built a pair of dependable antennas you can count on for your day to day communications. The 2M15-B is 100% American made with 100% American materials.
The core material is solid 3/8" (9.5cm) fiber-rich, custom blended, fiberglass. Each is hand wound with double insulated 19 gauge copper wire. Our 3/8"-24 threaded base will fit all common mounts and accessories. Both antennas are covered with a static reducing, water-tight sleeve containing UV and pigment stabilizers. A vinyl cap is provided to protect the tuning mechanism from the elements.
Like all transmitting antennas, these antennas work best when mounted over sufficient ground plane. The versitility of the tuning screw design offers a wide tuning range. The lowest frequency is achieved by having the tuning screw in its highest lockable position and the vinyl cap installed. Likewise, the highest frequency of the antenna can be found with both the vinyl cap and tuning mechanism removed.
During design testing we were able to achieve resonance from 135-168MHz without exceeding our maximum threshhold SWR of 2.0:1. In the 144-148MHz band sub 1.5:1 SWR was easily achieved.
As a brand new customer of Walcotts I just needed to tell you what a pleasure it has been to do bisiness with folks like you. My orders have been shipped on time and in accurate good order.

Thank you Walcott !!! I tried to contact three other "so called distributors", I left each one an e- mail 5 days ago. No answer as of this a.m.. I called on the same day and left follow up messages. Mind you I'm the customer, But I need a radio. Still no calls or e-mails. So this morning I said I' ll call the Walcott number. they are a little more expensive than the chumps I called but I need my radio. The number rang and expecting disappoint, I heard a polite "Hello, Walcott Radio, how my I help you". Well, I flipped. The man introduced himself as Lamont. To make a long story short. Every question was answered, and I had alot. I haven't used a CB in 30 years. The best part I have a real radio guy helping me. I can't wait to get my new radio. No body on the planet can sell me a radio but My Man Lamont. Lamont, thank you so much for your professionalism, courtesy, and friendliness. George D. Smith-- George S.
To whom it may concern: I just recently purchased a Uniden BC 796D scanner and wanted to take this oppurtunity to tell you what a pleasurable experience I had. To be answered live on the first 2 rings is what customer service is about and wanted to say thanks for the great experience.Walcott is far above any competition you may have and I will always come back here for all of my needs. Thanks again and "keep up the good work". Barry N. Jones/ President Advanced Business Comm.,Inc.-- Barry J.
