Wilson Antennas celebrating 50 years

Updated May 16, 2019

Wilson Antennas will mark its 50th anniversary this year, the company has announced.

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, the company says.

To mark the half century milestone, Wilson says 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, the company says.
