    Hey I've got a 2019 cascadia, general lee radio. Im using a kb40 now but swr is at 1.8 won't come any lower. Was wondering if a different antenna would help? Don't seem to have much distance now.

    You may want to search for the cascadia thread on this forum. It has a lot of good info on CB antenna problems with the cascadia trucks.

    On cascadias there is only one place to mount them wortha beans....
    Drivers side mirror arm..I will say it will cost you a 6 pack and some time to do it all and do it correctly....No time or patients,then just enjoy what ya got..
