Here is a good article on base antennas. 5/8 wave are best for gain as far as vertical omnis go. While this article is a sales pitch for the one the author built for review, he mentions other brands and does some comparison. Might point at a solution. I have a base antenna some one gave me. It’s the A99. I have it taken apart and as a winter project I intend to clean it (take rust off) and get all new screws for it, rebuild it and get it out on a warm day.

Subject: [REACT-LIST] CB Radio Recommendations

After many, many years of not having a CB I’m looking to purchase 2 radios, one for home and one for mobile / portable emergency operations. I’d like to purchase the same radio for both and would like suggestions as to what you would recommend. Also, recommendations on base antennas would be appreciated.
