New to HAM radio and taking steps to get informed, study, take test and still looking/learning about radios platforms/brands etc... So as many on this forum (maybe?), in efforts to save $$$(not cheap-ass), frugal, trying to reduce the hoarding syndrome and as a valiant effort to appease my better half, I pose the following question that btw I checked the internet, called the Mfc., and still not gotten a definitive answer? So here it is, "I have a Wilson 1000 CB radio whip antenna and 5" mag mount that has served me well and never had fall off...", My question is, "Can the “magnetic mount” and cable only be used/match for a HAM “antenna” and are they compatible ? It’s my understanding that the “CB antenna” is not compatible to be used for a HAM radio/transmitter. I’m just wondering if the magnetic mount and cable can be used for the HAM transmitter/antenna?
