hello everybody,

i would like to ask how do you fit a cb anttena onto a volvo fh cab as a friend of mine at work has a volvo fh i looked at the cab and thought of a gutter mount to fit onto the gutter at the back of the cab then i thought how much cable would he need and how would he put the cable into the cab to his cb radio as his radio will be on the dashboard so it will be easy to reach he has a 5" orbitor whip,

i have to admit these new upto date trucks are very nice inside and outside but dont make it easy where to fit a cb antenna anymore,

kind regards,
