It's not probably astronomically better. But I'm confident in saying I have a bit of range advantage..just due t the longer antenna..I don't think the mounting height effects that..

Either way. Your radio is the only radio I've even talked too that I could always hear haha
Yes, that is my point. Mine has a hood mount.

IMO, the reason you could hear well was because of the canyon walls. The walls tend to channel the signal beyond the nornal range.There is no doubt that your radio works very good. Possible as good as any "stock" radio I have ever wheeled with. Some of that is, IMO, because we have the same radios.

Yea it works fine. It's range sucks with the tiny ass little antenna that just goes on it.

Lisa tho got an external antenna for hers and it worked quite well. Best quality I've heard. Not killer range but her antenna was small.

It died in Moab but was just a small power wire. My dad fixed it when i let him use it.

A lot of really good info in this thread about making a CB work.
It tuned alright when I did it, 1 and 40 were pretty dam close. It was always just too quiet, even when I ground it straight to the frame and redid the power cables directly to the battery and swappd mics. Maybe my coax is laying on itself and I need to re do it?

Would having the coax running under my amp for the sub cause it to not transmit right?

That still doesn't explain it! What kind of power wires? Like don't touch the cb to the positive and negative battery terminals?

So are you saying I can use the cb...or have the cb

Well the mount should ground if its connected to the bed which is metal, and gues what, it's in the front of the bed by the cab, so blah.

I have to go back to work on Monday, Then you guys can go back to looking at more lights being installed . Next hitch off I hope to some big mods with headers, ucon, y-pipe, etc. Then I can move on to Armor.
