There is the actual antenna
, and there is the active electronics
in the antenna base. The latter is junk now. The actual antenna whip itself is still perfectly good, and if it has a typical 3/8x24 thread can be used for CB radio
, or other radios if it happens to be the right length and impedance. (You'd want to use an SWR meter to check before transmitting into it.) Or as a flagpole.<G>
If it is an eight foot stick, fiberglass
wrapped...it is still worth keeping. All depends on what you've got there.
