CB Radios in Stangs

I just found out that we had an old Cobra cb radio lying arround. It's nice and tiny and will fit in my lower din easily, all it needs is an antenna. My question to you all is, do they make hidden CB radio antennas? I'd really like to avoid mounting any external antenna on my car. Also, can CB radios communicate on FRS and GPRS channels?

I will most likely be using my CB too that I have, but I think I am going to mount it somewhere else. I have heard that there is a box that you can mount somewhere that will allow you to use your radio antenna. Ive never seen one, but I never have looked. But if I can find one I will most likely use that. I would doubt it would be as good as an actual antenna, but who knows.

Charles, this one that mounts onto the windshield... is it tiny like the one I have for my 2-way alarm system that goes in the corner of hte interior windshield? Or is this meant to be mounted on the outside? If it's outside mounted, does it use dbl sided tape? And where/how do you run the wires?

hmm a girl at my work has a a cb radio in her tbird, and she has a little antenna, about 2" long, coming from the top center of hear rear window. ill have to ask her how they installed it. prolly drill a hole through the window? drill a hole through the weather stripping closest to the window and run a wire? i can only guess.

on glass mounts, they are like a cell phone antenna. one side sticks to the inside glass with the wire, and the other side sticks to the outside glass and the 2 meet int he middle, no holes, and you put the wire up in the headliner to the A post and run it down to your CB.

just run a wire from the antenna output on the radio to some part of the body (making the whole car an antenna)
