Okay, replace it with a standard am/fm antenna, and then put on a seperate antenna for the CB and match it properly. If you don't you can damage your CB.

antenna fix reply to pfogle

thanks for the possible fix on my antenna, but i don't want to punch any new holes in my van if i don't have to.
the present antenna uses two holes in the side of the fender. if, i go the route that you suggested then i'll have two additional holes plus i'll also have two antennas sticking up. i guess it might be one possible solution, but i just don't know why i seem to have an antenna that no one has ever seen before.
it apparently came from the factory, maybe the conversion company, that way. thanks

The one on the fender is a factory antenna, or should be.... It may have had an aftermarket mast on it. You can replace that antenna with any factory ford antenna from a junk yard, and then get a magnet mount CB antenna.
