Great looking rig.

What do you use the second rear mounted antenna for?

Thanks!

Id like to say for the cb but having two antennas interfere with eachother so its mostly for show. Im giving it to bowtiefreak since he needs one and I've grown to appreciate the single antenna look as opposed to my dual preference
