Yeah - it's just that last summer, I found myself driving under downed trees quite a bit - where someone had already cut a tunnel thru the branches. I was clearing the trunks with inches to about a foot to spare.

So how do I connect my antenna to my cb box?

I have a firestick 4'


and this mount for my hood mount


And this coax cable


but it has two of those coupling ends and my mount for the antenna doesn't have a reciprocating piece...

I'm not good at wiring things.

You got the wrong mount. You need a mount that the coax will just screw into..That mount looks like a fire ring type mount

Yes. Use some sealant where the wires come out of the outer jacket.

I never ended up tuning my Cobra antenna. Think I blew it up. Cannot receive anything! No static or anything.

What happens if you open the squelch? even if you TX with no antenna it should still receive even if you cooked the finals in the radio provided you didn't let all the smoke out. Transmitting into a badly tuned antenna will not hurt the antenna but it will damage the radio.

Is the antenna electrically long or short?

Same 1.8 1/40, dips to 1.6 at 19, I really don't "mind" that as much as the antenna itself going crazy in wind and off trees bouncing around ecerywhere
