CB feedback

who gets feedback on their CB's when using electrical things in the truck unless you turn the squelch up quite a bit??? whenever I put my windows down, or use windshield washer fluid, the CB squeals like a MF. I grounded it directly to the battery... but am getting power from the fuse box to the left of the steering wheel. I don't want to power it from the battery because I was it to come on and go off with the truck, although it looks like that's what is fucking it up... anyone have any advice??

Sorry to say, but:
Best way is to wire directly to battery to ensure least amount of interference. Check your ground wire also...

I know you don't want to, but tried running power directly in wire to battery?

Also what antenna do you have? Is it tuned?

I tried running it right to the battery and it was still the same... I get like static and squeeling when using the windshield washer fluid and windows... I have the firestik 2 2' antenna... haven't tuned it but not sure it would help if im getting noise from the power in...

it goes away if I turn squelch up to like halfway... but I feel like that's not right.

just tried unplugging the coax cable and seeing if it did it, to which it did not. so... the noise is not coming from the power-in but the fucking coax cable. how would you fix that?
