My worthless CB antenna kit

after i purchased my cb radio i got this mag mount antenna kit with a 3 feet antenna it looks like the firestik antenna but it is not(non tunable tip). does not matter where i put the antenna my swr just straight up suck, the best i can get is 3:1.5, i dont know if i bought a wrong kit for my truck or is my radio messed up, i was wondering if any local members have some spare cb antenna that i can use to see what the deal is. im located at east bay, walnut creek, any help is appreciated

Marine band is not CB and operates in a completely different band at VHF. He would get nothing on a marine antenna. He needs an antenna with a tunable tip and to ditch the mag mount for a proper grounded mount.

I knew that it wouldn't work right, but I didn't know it wouldn't work at all. I figured it wouldn't work the way it should if it was a marine band antenna. Learn something new everyday. That's y I like TW!
