Firestik Antenna Company is located in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
Since its formation in 1962, the company's has remained focused
on the personal communications market. Firestik has had a lot of
experience there too. At various times in its life, Firestik manufactured
CB radios, test meters, amplifiers, variable frequency oscillators,
RF filters and more. In 1975 all energy was directed into designing
a line of high performance antennas. A strong foundation was laid
and a stable, quality minded company was built upon it. For the
last twenty plus years Firestik kept focused on its mission. You
will benefit from the dedication, care and spirit that Firestik
puts into their products. CB antennas and related accessories is
our product specialty. Honesty, fairness and understanding is our
service specialty. What can we do for you?
Firestik primarily makes antennas and accessories for the mobile
CB market. The company is especially recognized as a leader in
the art of manufacturing high performance wire-wound CB antennas.
Its success has earned it worldwide fame. Firestik products can
be found throughout the United States. They are also sold in Canada,
Mexico, United Kingdom, Western Europe, and several South American
countries. Aside from specializing in CB antennas and accessories,
Firestik's years of antenna know-how can be found in antennas made
for scanners, two and ten meter amateur equipment, and specialty
antennas such as those used for geoseismic exploration.
The Firestik name is synonymous with quality and performance.
Having built and sold in excess of 5,000,000 (5 million) antennas
should speak for itself. Those who are new to CB should seize the
opportunity to start out with the best money can buy. As for you
seasoned CB'ers, if you're not using a Firestik, you really don't
know what you're missing. You might find a less expensive antenna,
but we don't think you will ever find one better.
hi-performance coil design, Rugged solid-fiberglass core.
The most popular wire-wound CB antenna in the world. This is the
original Firestik design, and a proven performer since 1975.
"KW" antennas are compatible with autos, trucks, vans,
motorcycles and ATV's in a single antenna configuration when metallic
ground plane is available or they may be used in dual (co-phased)
configuration on any vehicle made from any type of material. Like
all CB antennas, the "KW" antennas require fine-tuning
(SWR) in their final mounting location. The loading coil on all
"KW" antennas is easily accessible for precise SWR adjustments.
All "KW" antennas exceed the requirements of any CB radio,
new or old. Aside from the hi-performance loading coil that maximizes
the transmit/receive functions of your CB, these top-loaded antennas
will also receive the NOAA emergency weather alert and national
weather broadcasts for radios with those features.
The "KW" antennas
are 100% American made with 100% American materials. To maintain
a balance between flexibility and ruggedness, we use a custom
blended, glass fiber reinforced shaft. Each is wound with heavy
insulated copper wire to prevent the oxidation and shorted windings
often found on non-Firestik antennas. The 3/8"-24 threaded
base has a tapered contact point that works especially well with
Firestik mounts and accessories. The tapered "lug-nut"
effect transfers stress away from the threads and reduces the possibility
of vibration induced loosening of the antenna in its mount. Each
antenna is covered with a static reducing, water-tight sleeve containing
UV and pigment stabilizers. For peak performance we recommend that
you use one of our 18-foot Fire-Flex coaxial cables with these
All "KW" series
antennas are factory bench tested for resonant frequency and
overall quality. They are available in four (4) standard colors
.. Black or White with a red tip, or Red or Blue with a white
forget ... ALL antennas, regardless of style or manufacturer,
MUST be tuned after installation on the vehicle. Transmitting
antennas are not "plug-n-play" devices.
