I found this antenna on the Uniden website:
BATG0521001 - Mobile mounting antenna for scanners. Replaces AT002

Has anyone used this antenna before? How well did it work?

Its doesn't work very well at all. All it is is a wire with a bnc connector on one end.

That almost is identical to the one they ship with the BCT-8.

I used it once when I first received the BCT-8, that was years ago.

As far as working good with CB, it doesn't work well. You will be able to pick them up but not far at all. I wouldn't waste the money on it personally.

I used one of those for awhile in my car and it was 1x worse than an AM-FM scanner antenna coupler, and 2x worse than the Tram 1199 glass mount antenna I currently have. The Tram 1199 DOES receive CB within about a 5 mile radius. Best is to do a permanent mount on the vehicle. But if you can't, through the glass is the next best option. Here are some cautions re: glass mount antennas -

In my SUV I have a permanent Mount wide band antenna.. The suction cup one we are talking about I used as a Base Antenna.. In the vehicle it Super Sucks. Came with my BCT12. Thanks for the links.. Will check them out later...
