It could be that no one is using a cb within your antenna range. Try going up gold camp you might pick someone up. I have mine on ch 19 right now

I am bringing mine tomorrow, but you need to be carefull trying to transmit without having it set right. You can overload the transisters and fry it.. so if you can wait I'll help you out in the morning.
