Hello & Welcome,

Congratulations on your radio purchase.

K40 has a good reputation for quality antennas, including magnetic mount style. I have a link to an Amazon listing for one such antenna that might suit your needs.

I also have a link to a "search" I did for "magnetic mount cb antenna" on Amazon, that will show you a wider selection.

Please let me know what you find or if you have any more questions.

If this has answered your question(s), please take a moment to rate MY service level (5-star is my goal) so that I get credit for my time helping you with this question.

I need a specific model type that matches my radio
Expert:  Greg A. replied 18 days ago.

Hi again,

What specification are you referring to?

I only ask because the MAIN CONCERNS for ANY antenna system is that it is matched for the frequencies used and the power rating for the radio(s) to be used with it.

Hi again,

I see your call request and can call you in a few minutes (have to reach a phone).

Expert:  Greg A. replied 18 days ago.

OK - I tried to accept you call request, but see a "payment failure" on my end. This may be caused by needing a large deposit or clearing a "security check" with your bank.

We can also continue our conversation here - in this text/chat format.

Please let me know what you would like to do.

I'll use a different credit card
Expert:  Greg A. replied 18 days ago.

NOTE: I've been working with CB (and amateur band) radios for more than 20 years, so feel free to ask any related questions.

Expert:  Greg A. replied 18 days ago.

Let me send a call request from my side - as that may be easier for you to accept than to have to re-issue on your side.
