Re: 3\' or 4\' Firestik?

I bought an elcheapo Radio Shack fiberglass antenna (it was about as thick as my pinky finger) mounted to my spare tire stopper and tore it off in the woods trying to get ahead of a stuck truck to give him a pull.
So I bought the 5/8ths wave Firestick it's 5' long and as thick as my thumb and sticks up over my roof by about 2' it's been in the same location as the first one and I've had no trouble with it. The Fire Stick is the toughest fiberglass antenna I've ever seen. The only time I've had to worry about it's height is when I put her in the garage,don't want to tear up the sofet (SP?)
