yeah, I have a little 3 or 4 foot fiberglass firestik so I don't bang it up on trees or parking garages, and it fits sideways in the back of the cab. works well enough for me, I barely use it lol, only for wheeling/camping or on road trips. it gets about 6-7 miles out last i checked, so I don't complain

No, it's a personal preference. I only use mine to talk to truckers on the interstate when there's an accident, to talk to buddies on trails, to call people out on the P.A., and on specially equipped radios, listen to the latest weather reports.

Cool deal man. I used to have a firestick, but I don't know where it got to. One of my buddies used to run dual whips on his truck.lol. They both pretty much cancelled each other out though so his reception sucked. He traded the 2nd one for a new cb and now he gets pretty good reception.

yeah, I know there's supposed to be a certain (wide lol) distance between them or it messes with the signal, so nobody except for truckers really bothers to try and use that setup

This is a hard one man. I know for sure that it's not really good to mention how he's gone or anything, it'll just make it worse. I think it's best to listen to what she has to say and just agree with her. I'm sure the other guys can help you out a bit more as i've never had to deal with this.
