    So I installed my cb the other day but have not tuned the antenna yet. Today I drove over to the 25 and did a radio check with a couple truckers and at about 1.5 miles everything was clear both ways...

    What is a reasonable expectations for range?

    I have a Uniden Pro 510 xl hooked up to 18' of cable with a Fire Stick mount and a 3' fire stick/fire fly antenna mounted at the furthest point of the bed... Above the tail light.
