The Wilson 500’s higher gain performance for an economical antenna is the result of several design modifications to the famous Wilson 1000. Using the basic design of the W-1000, Wilson is able to produce a mid priced magnetic antenna with great performance characteristics. This produced the most powerful CB base loaded antenna available in its price range.

A large portion of the power that goes into a typical base loaded CB antenna is lost as heat in the coil and as dielectric heat loss in the plastic inside the coil form. Many CB antennas lose more than 50% of the power put into them.

The power is wasted as heat loss and not radiated as radio waves. Another weak link in other CB antennas is the capacitor used to match the coax to the antenna, which is a cheap and easy way to make the SWR look good, but has lots of power loss, plus blows out when high power is applied to it.
