problem with midland cb 75-822

Ok so i have a midlan 75-822 and ive been setting up with a friend. i have a wilson little wil antenna that im using with the radio. so the issue im having is that he can hear me perfectly fine but when he talks to me i cant hear anything. but if i turn it to the weather and then back to CB mode then i can hear him, but once i transmit then i cant hear him any more.

Make sure that the antenna mount is grounded properly and that the antenna is NOT grounded! As mentioned above, proper tuning with a swr meter is essential! Also have at least 2/3 the antenna above the roof. Do not loop extra coax, it there is extra coil it in a figure eight.
Hope some of this helps. Keep us updated.

With those magnet ones I Geuss from what I read the problem sometimes there reading is little high and all you do is shave it down 1/4 increments and keep checking the swr meter if it's changing at all

I didn't know it was a magnet mount. And the mount still needs ground, but it grounds itself through the magnet being on the roof.
Be careful when trimming your antenna if it is not tuneable. Cut it too short and you'll need a new antenna. Ask me how I know this. Lol

Right now I'm at 1.1-1.2 across all 40 channels. I made sure that my coax is not run by any electrical, not coiled, antenna mount is grounded to the frame properly, 2/3 my antenna is above the roof and I used ferrite cores on the cbs power wires and Mic wires.
