Anybody have comm questions?

Hey y'all,
Reading through this forum and thought Id throw it out there that one of my jobs in the USMC is radio operator so if anyone has any questions about how best to utilize your cb antenna/radio just hit me up. I can even post up some pics on how to make a "field expedient" antenna which will increase your range to an extent while stationary.

I installed my CB today. Wires it up, a power and a ground wire to the actual cb, and then I got a cheap 36" magnetic antenna to the rear bumper and fed it up through the tub to where I have the ch mounted.'s my issue... When driving I get road noise and engine noise being feed through and coming out the speaker. What causes this and more importantly, how do I fix it?!?!?!???

More than likely the problem is that your getting interfernce due to the fact that you have magnet on metal with the radio signal running through it. One thing to try is to just put some tape or other insulator between the magnet and the antenna that might help. Also check all connections to make sure they are grounded properly and insulated.
