CB to antenna hookup?? Confused??
 
4 Attachment(s)
Hey guys, so i was given a CB radio awhile ago by a friend of mine who pulled it out of his big rig when he upgraded. Its an older model cobra. i decided recently to actually hook it up and today i went out to our local Pilot truck stop and bought what i thought was everything i need. But the problem im having is, I can't see how to hook up my 18' cable to the antenna. I know how to hook it up to the radio, but the end of the cable doesn't seem to fit my 4' firestik. I've included some pictures and I'm hoping someone can enlighten me. Do I need an adapter of sorts for it? Or did I buy the wrong cable?


This is a Picture of the end of my firestik antenna.

All hooked up to a Cobra DXIV (?) radio.
