    happened to me on the last trail ride. Did you have the flag up top or towards the base? Gotta let her fly low

    I keep my flag on the antenna all the time, but slide it down to the bottom when not on the trail.

    You might want to try a spring base for your antenna. I have a 4' Firestick that sits pretty high, but the spring base keeps it from snapping off with the trail flag and low hanging trees.

    Sucks man!! I drove thru the parking lot at Metro the other day and hit the antenna on every cross beam; wack, wack, wack, wack but it didn't break. Were you running a spring on it?

    Get yourself a HD Spring with the new antenna. You'll have retune the CB cause of the few inches of extra height.
