50 Years of Wilson Antennas

January 1, 2019; Elizabethtown, PA – Wilson Antennas, one of the leading brands in the trucking industry, will mark its 50th Anniversary this year. Part of the RoadPro Family of Brands, Wilson is known for setting the standard for truck antennas that have superior power and a durable rugged design. Founded by Jim Wilson in 1968, who began by manufacturing and selling CB antennas and two-way radios, he developed and designed the very first high powered, heavy-duty trucker antenna. This first design is still in the product offering today and remains one of the best on the market.

To mark the half century milestone, a newly designed gold-plated antenna will be offered in travel centers throughout the country in 2019. In addition, during the month of January, RoadPro will feature a fun social media campaign on their Facebook page where visitors can answer trivia questions each day on the history of Wilson and its products. Those that answer the questions correctly will be entered to win one of 50 Wilson antennas. Don’t miss your chance to win by visiting https://www.facebook.com/RoadProBrands/ or https://www.roadprobrands.com/wilson-trivia-challenge.

As Wilson enters this historic year it remains the name in over-the-road communication continuing to offer the very best in antennas and CB accessories that are second to none in quality and innovation.
