Finally installed the GME AE4018K1 today! (after turning the current antenna into a "Z" on Alex's trip!)

Based on Subarino's recommendation, my son ordered one with his new Jeep as well.

No, just plug it in for UHF; very easy DIY. Works very nicely too!

What everyone has forgotten is ground planing is the key to all UHF and 27 mhz transmittions. It's also is the key to not burning out your finals in the respective radios. I see too many people try and attach a base mount to there bullbar and an antennea. There is not enough ground plane to suffice this type of set up hence the technology of elevated feed antenneas. When UHF was bought out intially every user drilled a hole in the middle of there roof to acheive ground planing, and before UHF, 27mhz users did the same. The elevated feed option is the simplist and non derogitive way to mount an antenna. The best way is to drill a hole centre of your roof and use the old style method to acheive best results. I run a 25 watt radio with an RFI 6 dbi elevated feed antenna and acheive excellent transmission in my2008 Forester. I can talk 50 - 100km simplex and have strong duplex input. On road, being a B double interstate driver I use an elevated feed with a 4.5 dbi antenna and a 5 watt GME4400. This acheives outstanding qualities.

Very happy with my GME AE4018K1 and want to buy another but now they are 6.6dBi not 4.5? Odd that they would change it!

^ just researching this again as I'm about to buy another and found "4.5db UHF Antenna Equivalent to 6.6dbi" - so it has not changed
