What is the difference between the Trucker 2000 & the SW-2000?

The first noticeable difference is in the length of the antenna whip. The 2000 uses a 49" whip while the SW-2000 has a 31" whip. Internally, there are more windings on the coil of the SW-2000 to allow using a shorter whip. The stainless steel shaft below the loading coil offers a choice of 5" or 10" on the 2000, and 18" or 22" on the SW-2000. Both have the same high performance qualities, and will offer the same effective and reliable communications.
WHY THE Wilson "Trucker 2000" PERFORMS BETTER
The Wilson 2000 Trucker’s higher gain performance is a result of several new design developments that bring you the most powerful CB center loaded antenna available in its price range.

A large portion of the power that goes into a typical loaded CB antenna is lost as heat in the coil and as dielectric heat loss in the plastic inside the coil form. Many CB antennas lose more than 50% of the power put into them. The power is wasted as heat loss and is not radiated as radio waves. Another weak link in other CB antennas is the capacitor used to match the coax to the antenna. This is a cheap and easy way to make the SWR look good, but has lots of power loss, plus blows out when high power is applied to it.

The first priority was to reduce the dielectric loss by removing as much of the plastic inside the coil as possible. This was accomplished by suspending the coil in air, supported only at four small points, 90 degrees apart, in effect removing 95% of the plastic from the inside surface of the coil. This reduced the dielectric loss to a negligible amount.

The second priority was to get rid of the resistive heat loss in the coil. Since most of the RF energy at 27 MHz travels on the surface of the wire, it was decided to increase the surface area by making the diameter of the wire a larger 10 gauge copper. Since silver is a much better conductor than copper, although very expensive, the wire was heavily silver plated. This reduced the resistive loss to a minimum. Any power loss in the coil is practically eliminated in the Wilson 2000 Trucker.

So far you have read about why the Wilson Trucker 2000 performs better, but it is also the most rugged trucker antenna you can buy. It is made with Mobay’s Thermoplastic which costs a lot more, but it’s the best available. All of these are the reasons you get a 1 year warranty and your Wilson Trucker is guaranteed to outperform any CB mobile antenna (except the Wilson Trucker 5000 ) or your money back.

For the ultimate in Trucker performance and power handling see the Wilson Trucker 5000.

*TEST RESULTS: Tests by Dr. Dwight Heim (PHD Electrical Engineering, Professor Emeritus, University of Michigan), show that the WILSON 2000 TRUCKER has 20% more power gain than the Hustler "Red Neck" Super Resonator model RM-11S, and 12% more power gain than the Penetrator II (with comparable shaft lengths).

**PERFORMANCE GUARANTEE: The Wilson 2000 Trucker will outperform the CB trucker 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.

ANTENNA 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 matching configuration.
