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
Wilsons 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).
Wilsons 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.
