K40 Electronics K30 Reviews
Owned this antenna for 5 years now, and have used on many cross country trips, in rental cars. Out of the box it had a unusable swr no matter where I moved the whip, I determined I had to trim a bit of it. It is perfect 1.1 on Channel 20, however it doesn't get very far out of band, as for use on 10 meters without a tuner, forget about it. Anyways if you're looking for a good go to, standby antenna for trips that is reliable, dependable, and recieves/transmits extremely well on the legal CB band for it's tiny size, this is the antenna for you.
Last year ordered a White K40 Mag mount from Walcott CB (Best Price) Have used K40s for years with very good results, I live in Sun City AZ and a friend let me use his K30 until I got the K40, the K30 is not as broad banded as the K40 but was 1 to 1 SWR on channal 20, with my new Cobra 148GTL stock can talk 20+ miles back to my base station a Cobra 200GTL with a Antron 99 at 36' to the bottom of the antenna when there is no skip, the K30 works better than my K40 for transmit and receive on channal 19. This antenna gets a 5 stars in my book, don't know how they do, but glad they did................Oldtimer
I ordered two of these antennas; one for my truck and one for my car. I was never able to get the SWR anywhere near an acceptable range. One of the whips have been ruined in an attempt to "nip" the whip bit by bit in order get the SWR down. I had to use an antenna matcher in order to use the other one at all. This experience was AFTER I called for advice -- telling me that sometimes the whip has to be lopped off a couple of inches to get the SWR down! What is going on here?
I have one of these on a 96 Ranger with a cobra CB and I'm getting ranges of 10+ miles
