Solderless Wire

wiring two CB radio antennas?

Can someone tell me about CB antennas? i have two fiberglass antennas, one is 4' the other is 3' and i'd like to use the both of them on my truck.

Do i just get two lengths of coax and use a Y adapter to join them in the middle to the radio or is there more to it?

I have them mounted to either side od the hood in the front.

also, is it much better to solder the conections or can i just use solderless?

thanks!
rhsaunders... just cirious as i do not know, but how can this be true when every big-rig truck i see has two antennas?

the set-up you are referring to is called "Twin Truckers" and yes you can.

setting up two identical antennas on either side of the vehicle will give you a more omnidirectional range. you'll want to mount them as close to the center of the vehicle as possible. ideally mount one at the front center bumper of the truck and one at the back center bumper... but it'll look funny.

keep your connections tight and it'll work just fine.
