Just for info... all aerials designed for CB's will work... some better than others.
BUT, what many people forget is it needs tuning (adjusting the length) to set the SWR (Standing Wave Ratio)... You need a SWR meter for this.
It will work without doing this but signal performance can be reduced.

And remember, you get what you pay for... I use K40 aerials with their mag mount. This has stayed put at over 130mph on an autobahn whereas I've seen cheaper mag mounts slide off cars after 50mph...
