This paper is a review of the way in which the high-quality factor antennas can be used to integrate the VHF and HF car's antennas in one device. The usage of the citizen band (CB) antennas in an HF band extends the environmental awareness of the driver and could increase the safety of the traffic. Usually, the citizen band transceiver with its antenna isn't installed in a brand new car but the FM radio receiver it is. The main constraints that are related to the size difference between the two

The paper analyzes the technological advancements in the field and investigates some alternatives to the issue that will allow an opening through a single antenna usage for both radio bands.
