Hey everyone! Just got cb installed and was looking to see where people were storing their antennas when not in use. Post your pics!

Well I want it up and out of the way so it doesn't get crushed when loading the back.
I like the clothes hook idea
I just put mine on the floor in the back. Depending on which length you have, it fits nicely between the front of the carpet back there and the slope going up to the back seats. If you have one longer than 4 feet such that it won't fit there, it'll have to come out.

Yep, that's what works for me. I have a 36" firestik with a spring and quick-disconnect. The spring fits snugly into the clothes-hook, holding the antenna along the headliner. Puts it out of the way, but not buried under other gear when I need it.

I have a 4ft and a 3ft. Its a stupid story why I have two but that is for another time. The 4 foot fits perfectly between the back seats and the wheel wells. The gap is large enough for it to fit and it doesn't rattle. I usually leave the 3 foot on but I sometimes have to pull it off to fit into parking garages. When I take that one off, I put it agains the door sill next to the drive seat. It stays in place and reminds me to put it back on when I leave the garage.

^^X3

One side is for the antenna the other side is for the whip and flag.

It all fits nicely and out of the way.

I keep mine in the house with most of the heavy duty recovery gear that I only carry on trail. I keep a stainless steel bolt lubed with dielectric grease in the spring to keep out road dirt. Takes 2 minutes to switch out.
