Yagi-Quad CB Base Station Antenna

     The most powerful and directive CB beam antenna on the market has a gain of 18dB and develops an effective multiplied power level 60 times that of your normal transmitter! It will handle up to 2kW. This, combined with unparalleled directivity, enables you to communicate with distant stations never before possible.
     Mounted on a 40-foot boom, the Flat 8  uses 7 Yagi-type elements plus a Quad reflector. Electrically this provides you with four more parasitic elements for a cumulative total of 11 elements! Adjustable gamma matches obtain the lowest SWR for both vertical and horizontal polarization. Forward gain, front-to-back ratio, and side rejection are the highest in the industry.


This antenna is like the laser 500 with Flat Side only. 

Power handling is 2000W PEP

Need Higher power?
Upgrade your gamma match to:






Made of aircraft alloy 6063-T5 aluminum tubing with .050" wall thickness, additionally elements are made from 6006 an even tougher alloy. To prevent fatigue failure, no holes are made in any boom or element.

The item most overlooked when ordering a custom radio is the microphone.  Your new tuned radio will NOT
sound great  with a stock mic on it  If your CB is more than a tool for work, you NEED to upgrade your microphone. 
My personal favorites are the Astatic 636L and RD104E.

If you place an order from outside the continental USA, we will calculate your actual shipping and send you a PayPal payment request.  We do NOT export Antennas or Base station radios.

Orders requiring technical work are shipped
 in about 3 to 14 days.

Heads up- The Price of many China-made
 items went up due to tariffs.
