It all started with the Thunderpole I antenna way back in 1982. Then the updated and much loved Thunderpole II a couple of years later, which many people still claim was one of the best CB antennas ever made. Then in 1986 came the Thunderpole III, followed by the Thunderpole 2000 at the turn of the millenium and the Thunderpole 4 in 2004.... click here to read on.
