W-2000
"Trucker"  CB Antenna

 

   

  The Wilson 2000 Truckerís higher gain performance is a result of several new design developments that bring you the most powerful CB center loaded antenna available in its price range.

     A large portion of the power that goes into a typical loaded CB antenna is lost as heat in the coil and as dielectric heat loss in the plastic inside the coil form. Many CB antennas lose more than 50% of the power put into them. The power is wasted as heat loss and is not radiated as radio waves. Another weak link in other CB antennas is the capacitor used to match the coax to the antenna. This is a cheap and easy way to make the SWR look good, but has lots of power loss, plus blows out when high power is applied to it.

     The first priority was to reduce the dielectric loss by removing as much of the plastic inside the coil as possible. This was accomplished by suspending the coil in air, supported only at four small points, 90 degrees apart, in effect removing 95% of the plastic from the inside surface of the coil. This reduced the dielectric loss to a negligible amount.

     The second priority was to get rid of the resistive heat loss in the coil. Since most of the RF energy at 27 MHz travels on the surface of the wire, it was decided to increase the surface area by making the diameter of the wire a larger 10 gauge copper. Since silver is a much better conductor than copper, although very expensive, the wire was heavily silver plated. This reduced the resistive loss to a minimum. Any power loss in the coil is practically eliminated in the Wilson 2000 Trucker.

     So far you have read about why the Wilson Trucker 2000 performs better, but it is also the most rugged trucker antenna you can buy. It is made with Mobayís Thermoplastic which costs a lot more, but itís the best available. All of these are the reasons you get a 1 year warranty and your Wilson Trucker is guaranteed to outperform any CB mobile antenna (except the Wilson Trucker 5000  or your money back.** .

For the ultimate in Trucker performance and power handling see the Wilson Trucker 5000.


*TEST RESULTS: Tests by Dr. Dwight Heim (PHD Electrical Engineering, Professor Emeritus, University of Michigan), show that the WILSON 2000 TRUCKER has 20% more power gain than the Hustler "Red Neck" Super Resonator model RM-11S, and 12% more power gain than the Penetrator II (with comparable shaft lengths).

**PERFORMANCE GUARANTEE: The Wilson 2000 Trucker will outperform the CB trucker antenna it replaces or your money back. This guarantee is good for 15 days from the date of purchase at the original purchase point only, and with dated sales receipt.

ANTENNA POWER GAIN : the amount of improvement in power amplification over another antenna. The higher gain antenna will transmit & receive farther, but the actual distance will vary depending on the gain, ground terrain and other environmental factors. Individual test results may vary due to the vehicle's ground plane and matching configuration.


This is the coil and shaft, there is also a 49" whip that goes in the end.

 Tests Show That Wilson Coils Have The Highest Efficiency
 Of All CB Trucker Antennas*

Dr. Dwight Heim, ( PH.D. Electrical Engineering, Professor Emeritus, University of Michigan ) an independent consultant, conducted a test and comparison on the coils of some of the antennas used by truckers. A chart from his complete tests is shown below.

The Wilson 5000 Trucker CB antenna was shown to have the highest "Q" rating of all antenna coils tested. The "Q" is the standard engineering measurement of efficiency of the antenna coil. The higher the "Q", the higher the efficiency, which means higher performance from that antenna.

The higher rating for the Trucker 5000 coil is a result of proper engineering practices, such as the correct length-to-diameter ratio for the wire size, and a silver plated 3/16" solid copper wire in manufacturing the loading coil.

Extensive research, development and engineering efforts showed that a silver plated 3/16" solid copper wire displayed better performance characteristics and lower losses, giving more power gain, than that of chrome plated hollow tubing. Copper is one of the best RF conductors available - silver is even better. Wilson combined the best of both worlds by choosing 100% pure silver for heavy duty plating of the large solid copper wire.

This combination provides better efficiency and higher performance properties, thereby giving more power gain than any 1/4" or 3/8" chrome plated tubing antenna coil.

The special design of the Trucker 5000 floating coil will not ice up and stop working or break, even in severe winter conditions. This means that using Wilsonís design techniques, the 5000 Trucker will not ice up and short out the windings as is possible with the open coil designed antennas. The highly engineered thermoplastic cover protects the coil from the harsh environmental conditions encountered on the open road. A dirty antenna coil can measurably cut the performance characteristics of that antenna, and one that is covered with ice can cut the performance by as much as 50%.

The Trucker 5000 is available with your choice of shaft lengths of 5" or 10", and mounts into a standard 3/8" X 24 threaded mount. Due to the increased torque applied to the mount with the Trucker 5000, it is recommended that only a stainless steel stud mount be used with the Trucker 5000.

The Trucker 5000 was designed specifically for users who want the best in a high performance antenna with the ability to withstand some serious power. The Wilson 5000 Trucker handles 5000 watts AM, 20,000 watts SSB (ICAS rating).

Wilsonís attention to detail, engineering quality and designs are what helps make the antenna perform so well. The strength of performance and power handling capabilities of the antenna will prove themselves the first time extra power is needed to break through noise and congestion on the air.

Over 25 years of knowledge and engineering experience in the design of antennas makes Wilson the recognized leader in CB Trucker antennas, and the 5000 the choice of truckers.

Need Parts?

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.
