THE Wilson 5000 PERFORMS BETTER
Wilson 5000 is the top performing base loaded CB antenna for
the automobile. Wilson used the basic design of the Wilson
Trucker 5000 with the exclusive low loss coil and proven performance
qualities of the Wilson 1000. The Wilson trademark of designing
an antenna with maximum efficiency is continued in the Wilson
Extensive research and engineering efforts showed that a 6 gauge solid copper
wire with a properly designed coil, displayed excellent performance characteristics.
And though copper is one of the best RF conductors available - silver is even
better. Wilson combined the best of both worlds by using 100% pure silver to
heavily plate completely over the large solid copper wire. This means that using
the Wilson design techniques, the Wilson 5000 will outperform all other base
loaded antennas available.
With the 5000 made from solid 3/16" copper silver plated wire, and the special
design of the floating coil, it will not ice up, stop working even in severe
winter conditions. There is no chance of the coil windings cracking from freeze
The Wilson 5000 is over 65% larger than the famous Wilson 1000, and designed
specifically for users who want the best antenna and have to ability to withstand
some power applied to it. The Wilson 5000 will handle 5000 watts AM, 20,000 watts
SSB (ICAS ratings).
Wilson's engineering quality, design, and attention to details is the key to
the high performance. The Wilson 5000's performance and power handling abilities
will prove itself the first time extra performance is needed to break through
the noise on the air.
With 30 years of knowledge and engineering experience in the design of antennas,
Wilson has become the recognized leader in CB Mobile antennas. The Wilson 5000
is now the choice of the serious CBer.
GUARANTEE: The Wilson 5000 CB antenna will transmit
and receive farther than the antenna it replaces or your money
back. This guarantee is good for 15 days from the date of purchase
at the original purchase point only, and with dated sales receipt.
POWER GAIN : The amount of improvement in power amplification
over another antenna. The higher gain antenna will transmit & receive
farther, but the actual distance will vary depending on the
gain, ground terrain and other environmental factors. Individual
test results may vary due to the vehicle's ground plane and
value and performance, you can't beat a Wilson CB antenna.
Short load - Info and specifications
height is a concern and you desire a shorter antenna, the Wilson
Short Load is the answer. Designed for maximum efficiency,
it is only 39 inches long and replaces the 62" whip that is
standard for the Wilson 1000 and the Wilson 5000. The
Short Load adapts to the Wilson 500 and all models of the Wilson
1000, 5000, Trucker 2000 and the Trucker 5000. The band width
will still be wide enough for most uses - 1-1.2 MHz, and the
power handling is 500 watts. The Wilson Short Load is the perfect
solution for individuals that require performance and desire
a shorter antenna.
