Driver Extreme (DRX-5541) - 38 Special Pre-Tuned Fiberglass Antenna, 40+ Channels of Coverage, 54", Black, Weather Band Ready, 400 Watt, 26.9 MHz to 27.4 MHz, Linearly Loaded Internally Wound Dual Conductor Design


Description:

The Driver Extreme 38 Special isn't like most fiberglass CB whips. Yes, it is smooth and sleek like some other designs, but that's where the similarity ends. Unlike most fiberglass CB antennas, the 38 Special's radiating element is internally wound with TWO wire conductors in parallel. Dual conductors translate to twice the metal and twice the surface area. More surface area means more metal to grab an incoming signal and send a signal out. More metal allows the 38 Special to handle greater power than any other competing internally wound designs.

Another difference between the 38 Special and other fiberglass antennas is how those dual conductors are wound. This antenna is linearly loaded. What does that mean? It means that the elements are wound consistently throughout the entire length of the antenna. This antenna radiates equally from top to bottom. What does that do? It makes the antenna more forgiving of poor ground planes due to a lack of metal on the vehicle and of nearfield reflections when mounted close to an exhaust stack or other things that typically hinder most designs from performing optimally. It makes the 38 Special a nearly universal antenna. Satisfaction guaranteed!

38 Specials are pre-tuned designs to work on almost any vehicle in almost any mounting location. No mess or fuss with having to fine tune each antenna for every installation. Just select the antenna of the proper height, thread it into the mount and the results speak for themselves. You will have 40+ channels of coverage with a SWR that is safe for the radio and low enough to offer good efficiency. Every Driver Extreme 38 Special antenna is weather band ready. If there's a NOAA Weather Band warning being broadcast, you'll hear it.

Last but not least, Driver Extreme has manufactured the 38 Special inside of a solid 3/8" diameter fiberglass rod at their U.S. facility. There are no other internally wound pre-tuned antenna that measures up like the 38 Special does.

The bigger diameter of the 38 Special gives you more protection for the radiating elements. This means less potential for breakage and greater long lasting reliability along with increased strength and rigidity that keeps the antenna standing up straight. This gives you more consistent tuning and performance as you roll down the road. When competitor's thinner pre-tuned designs are bending and lying over, they are also changing their SWR and altering how they receive and radiate signal. That bigger diameter helps the 38 Special keep your signal on target! They aren't swayed that easy!
