ok, i finally got it all set up and stopped popping fuses, nik in wire causing it to short, and im trying to pick something up and im not getting anything, alot of static or i can very faintly get someone, sounds like a mexican news broadcast lol. is this because i didnt tune the antenna with the swr yet or did i mess up something?

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.

I'll be on channel 30 in the morning I'll listen for you.

so after going over the whole coax and redoing the ground i did a little of reading. firestik makes theyre antennas extra long so im pretty sure that is the issue and i need to trim it. so dose anyone local have one id like to have it sorted out before i leave to go up to left hand. and im to cheap to buy one right now lol
