No Groud plane C.B.Antenna

Has anyone used a non ground C.B. antenna like a (Firestik) on a Bmw mounter CB?

Re: No Groud plane C.B.Antenna

I have a similar one from Radio Shack mounted on the right side in a home made bracket. I feed it with the RS hand held CB with good range out on the interstate.

Firestiks do require a ground plane for best results. I have multiple sizes (40M-6M) on my SUV when I run Ham Radio mobile.

Firestik II's are advertised as no ground plane antennas but, "The coaxial feedline, besides being the conduit for the signal to reach the antenna, serves as a tuned circuit that creates the necessary counterpoise."
