Default Stryker SR-A10MM small review

So I put my new Stryker SR-A10MM and put it on the car today for a weekend road trip.
Was in a bit of a rush so did not bother to tune SWR. Out of the box channel 19 they are about 1.3. Channel 40 1.5. Going below channel 1 they are about 1.1-1.2. Running a Galaxy 959.
All good reports. I'll have to do some more testing but so far the antenna seems to be good at not picking up extra noise.

That Stryker antenna has got the same specs. as the Wilson 5000, i wonder how it compares ? durability,performance,etc..
This being said,i think the cb community would greatly benefit from a website for reviews kind of like Eham.

Almost the same. Stryker is a inch bigger and I think the coil is bigger. It can also take 5000 more watts. Build seems to be great however I may replace the pl259 connector.

If your going to run at its rated power a PL-259 will not survive.

LOL I don't think more then 500 watts will ever go though it. Big amps cost to much.

Well after about 90 days I had to set up for a RMA. The coax is shorting where it meets the magnet. I don't think I will do an RMA because it may take forever.
Never had a K40 or Wilson 1000 **** out like this. Let down. Will say the antenna talks wonderful! I was driving around town on a good skip day smashing people with 4 watt dead key 10 watt swing!

Is the coax flexing too much at the magnet thus causing a short? I use a couple of little pieces of black Gorilla duct tape to hold the coax down so it doesn't flex in the wind and rub pain off the roof.

What is an RMA that will fix the problem?

As you noted, my K40 and Wilson 1000 mag mounts have given me no problems.

Hello All: Great info here.

I have rebuilt a few Wilson 5000 antennas, older ones about 15 years ago I think. I used RG142 or RG400 Teflon type coax to replace the cheap RG58 that is sold with the antennas. Its much more bullet prof and lasts a real long time G.I.

The Wilson 5000 was given to me with it being somewhat intermittent. I took it all apart and found the brass threads on the bottom of the antenna has small flakes of brass floating around and shorting the antenna connection. After cleaning it up, new RG400 Coax, and a new PVC outside case it worked great.
