I think you are talking about radio tuning and we are talking about antenna tuning. A really jacked up antenna set-up has the possibility of screwing up any radio.

Well, I would like the option! Haha! I'll have to look into that - and probably a non-magnet antenna, eh?

Sweet! That's good to hear!
I really don't think it's had the opportunity to get wet - so it must just be the tuning thing that I need to get figured out on it. It APPEARS to be working when I mess with the radio itself, just can't seem to hear anything on any channels.. Being closer to a truckstop might actually help me out in figuring that out too... Though my house is pretty close to the interstate...

We need to talk on the phone soon, not today. Maybe tonight or tomorrow.

Yes the mag-mounts suck unless you switch vehicles regularly.

you are probably correct, as stated in post above, I am not a radio man. I appreciate your input. Hmmm, I had a guy tune mine at work, but he tuned it using channel 20 wonder how much the truck stop would charge me

Are there power lines right above you when you try to ping out?

Does someone in your club have an swr meter? There are youtube vids that describe it very well, it's so easy. You should 'balance' channels 1 and 40.

Yeah, I mean mine works fine, especially on the trail, I can ping out about 3 miles. About all I need, but I will have it correctly tuned

It's easy to do yourself, just need an swr meter. You can find the inline ones for about $20.

Sounds good to me, man! I work tonight, but I have the next two nights off. Either way - I know I could arrange to talk whenever you'd like - just gotta' run off the unit for a few or something.

NEVER THOUGHT OF THAT! There are some nearby and some running over the end of my driveway.

Ahhhh... There could be my problem. When I tried tuning it and every time I've tried using it has been in my driveway - next to my house and probably about 50ft. from some powerlines...

I'm in deep cow excrement now..like up to my eyebrows. My gal left her FB up and I put up a photo album of our trip to Valley of Fire and one is an absolutely HORRIBLE pic of her and I labeled it "Sex Hair" and posted it. x 1000

I gotta go hide now.

Included some pics from there but damn sure not the one of her. She'd kill my ass.

Tom! So I'm thinking a 4' firestick for the antenna, what cb radio did you go with?

And where/how did you mount the antenna? (<-i hope i don't regret saying that)
