Help! I need CB help in the bay area!

I have a Magnum 257 10 meter radio that is set up to run CB 1-40. It seems to work ok, but when I tried to meter it out the meter reads really high. I really don't know much about this radio and want to make sure 1) i dont hurt it by running to high SWR's and 2) I want to be able to send and recieve clearer. I seem to have a lot of off and on issues. Need CB help please. I would love to be able to show my set up to someone local for advise and repair.

You may not get much help. What you are doing/asking is illegal.

From the link you posted.


10 METER USE
**Please note – the use of this radio on Amateur radio frequencies is limited to operators who have a valid Amateur radio license. If you do not have a ham radio license DO NOT operate this radio on ham radio frequencies. The CB band is from 26.965 to 27.405, if you intend to use the Magnum 257 HP as a CB radio (illegal according to FCC rules) do not operate outside of those frequencies as you may be interfering with vital emergency or military communications.
