Modulator Long Coil Style Antenna

Thunderpole's version of the popular Modulator long coil antenna, which was one of the most popular antennas ever made.

This "copy" seems to be just as good quality as the original, so since this is cheaper (and better presented) we now stock this one instead of the original Modulator.

Works very well, the only disadvantage is the size of it.

Mini Thunderpole Voyager

A shorter version of the Voyager

Although it will not work as well as larger antennas, this is one of the best performing small antenna.

Add to cart

Sold under different brand names as the Scarlet Warrior, Red Warrior, Red Thunder etc.

Looking like an over-sized Modulator (Voyager) antenna, with a large red coil approx 21" long, this antenna is Thunderpole's largest and has performance to match.

Works very well, the only disadvantage is the size of it.

Half Breed Style Antenna

Thunderpoles version of the classic "Half Breed" antenna.

A "Half Breed" style antenna, but with the advantage of easy swr adjustment (preset marks for UK & EU).

This antenna has a parallell rather than a tapered whip.

Add to cart
Short Thorobred Z27 Style Antenna

A reduced size "Half Breed" style antenna, but with the advantage of easy swr adjustment (preset marks for UK & EU) and a high quality tapered stainless steel whip.

Will not work as well as the longer version, but if you need a small antenna this is a good choice because it is one of the easiest to swr.

Discontinued

Thorobred Z27 Style Antenna

Thunderpoles version of the classic antenna from Thorobred.

A "Half Breed" style antenna, but with the advantage of easy swr adjustment (preset marks for UK & EU) and a high quality tapered stainless steel whip.

The Original "Springer" Antenna

The most popular antenna available - especially with truckers and farmers.

An "economy" version of the Orbitor - the only differences being that this is supplied in a bag (rather than carded) and the connections on the coil are very slightly different.  The cheaper packaging and bulk buying allow us to offer this £3 cheaper than the carded version.

Not to be confused with cheaper copies which have poorer quality whips and coils. This is a genuine Thunderpole antenna with a tapered whip.

Available in a wide range of colours.

Now also available in PINK & ORANGE 

Heavy Duty Version
Add to cart
The Original "Springer" Antenna

The most popular antenna available - especially with truckers and farmers.

This is the "HD" version, which will work the same as the standard one but has slightly heavier construction (thicker neck & base).

Sold under a variety of names (Orbitor, Springer, Stinger etc) but Thunderpole claim to be the original manufacturers.

These are the most flexible and hard wearing antenna ever made, the large open coil acting like a big spring.

This is the original Thunderpole version, available in black or chrome only, and supplied carded.

Cheap versions are available for under £10, but those have a straight (not tapered) poor quality steel whip, which "flops about" a lot because of it's weight and is easily bent out of shape.

The new range of 'SS' antennas by Thunderpole are the only 100% corrosion resistant steel CB antennas available.

 

The Orbitor SS is a high performance antenna that has a heavy duty coil and whip both manufactured from 100% Stainless Steel.

 

They have also reinforced the connecting parts and added an extra grub screw to give this antenna added strength and durability, making it ideal for even the most demanding situations. It will work on most vehicles and the SWR is pre-tuned.

Mini Orbitor

A smaller version of the Thunderpole Orbitor - for use where the original one is too long

Will not work quite as well as the full size version, but this is one of the best performing small antennas available.

Very flexible.  Very popular on tractors and 4x4.

This is an economy version of the original Trucker-80.  It is still made by Thunderpole but the coil is not quite as heavy duty as the original and it is supplied loose in a bag rather than carded.  For heavy use I would recommend the original is used.

Centre-loaded Trucker-80

A centre-loaded version of the Trucker-80.

Because it is centre-loaded this will give higher performance than the standard Trucker-80, but is obvioulsy not as flexible.

The bottom section of the antenna is quite thick and solid and will not bend - so it is not suitable if you are likely to be hitting the antenna low down.

Add to cart

  • Power Handling: 3000 Watts

Super Flexi Fibreglass Antenna

Similar to the famous Firestik antenna but thinner and more flexible.

These antennas are continuously wound and so give you a lot of antenna in a little space - which means maximum performance.

The swr is adjustable at the tip.

Although they are somewhat flexible (you can bend them almost double) you would not want to be bashing them about too much.

Not suitable for use on a mag mount.

Note: We have SOLD OUT of the BLACK in 2ft & 3ft

FireStik Copy - 2ft-4ft

A British made copy of the famous Firestik.

These antennas are continuously wound and so give you a lot of antenna in a little space - which means maximum performance.

The swr is adjustable with a screw under the top cap.  This is the same as the Firestik II.

These antenna are not flexible at all and so should not be used if you are likely to catch them on low trees etc.

Not suitable for use on a mag mount.

We have SOLD OUT of the BLACK in 2ft & 3ft

On-Glass CB Antenna

OGA

Sold Out - discontinued

An on-glass CB antenna, designed to fit on the windscreen of a car, looking like a larger version of a mobile phone antenna.

The slim loaded whip (approx 70cm long) sticks on the outside of the window, and the coax connection sticks on the inside - no drilling is required.

Performance will be very poor compared to a proper fixed antenna - I would expect 2-4 miles typically.

Ideal if you only require transmission over short distances and need something discreet.

Original Firestik made in USA

We have a very limited stock of the original American 7ft Firestik antenna, available in red, black and white.  These are the original Firestik and not the Firestik II and do not have a tunable tip.

Ideal for static mobile DX work.

The BLUE version is now discontinued..

Please phone/email to check availability & colours.

Note: because of the size of these they can only be sent by carrier at a cost of £9.95. Best bet is to buy other things at the same time to save carriage costs!
