I never knew, either! & the sad part is: I've owned 3 CBs(2 Cobras, 1 Realistic, w/ power mics, towers, etc.), with a 6' whip, & also a Realistic base for my old house with a 15' house antenna....

I hear you! Wish I had one on the service truck I had to take from RI to FL. Back then, I had no idea you had to stop @ weigh stations with an F-550....
