I summize that there's two reason's why i'm not picking anyone up on my tti 80 channel with all the EU ones, its either that no one around my area, leyland/chorley has one OR the 7" magmount with a 1.5 spring loaded whip sat on a huge metal drain duct cover, sin't getting me far enough.

Anywho's if it is the ariel, anyone suggest a good one, not to tall, to attach to a nice 14ft pagolla.

Assuming you are trying the UK40 channels, most activity (not necessarily intelligent activity though :roll: ) will be heard on channel 19. You could try using the mag mount on a vehicle body, or perhaps consider getting a proper homebase antenna?

CB'ers are MUCH fewer and MUCH further between these days, you need every advantage you can eek out of what you are using to make contacts.

try 24 uk about 5.00pm each week day night and you should hear Eddie from Lancaster with no trouble from where you are

Im not home by then but just ordered a bigger home base antenna, 18ft on which will fit nicely to my 14ft high pagolla, so fingers crossed..
