I've already got one, its called a Sirio S3000 and cost a lot less
I think you're missing the point, Sirio build the antenna using their parts. It's not just the CB antenna rebadged - I think it's probably a balun/unun type of arrangement, similar to the Chameleon. It looks like the Sirio because it's built in a Sirio casing, but the innards are designed by SRC.
I think the CB antenna costs around £40, the SRC costs £60 - £50 at rallies, so not much more for an antenna that covers more. I'm very pleasantly surprised with it so far. It'll never be a full size dipole but for a six foot mobile whip it's not bad at all.
