new to me cb radio

I was over at my grandparents house the other day helping fix a garage door and i noticed they had a cb radio just sitting on a bench in the garage. They said I could take it for fixing the door. The previous owner of my jeep had a cb radio but took it out when he sold it, all the wires and everything are still in my jeep as far as I can tell. I know I have to sauter (spelling) the wires back onto the speaker of the cb i got from my grandparents but I was wondering if im going to need an antenna to test it out to see if it works or not. I dont want to ruin the thing by not having an antenna.

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks

Yes try the firestik antenna with the tuning screw on top. Does your radio have the swr on it?
