    Ok so I am driving back to Sacramento, CA from Spokane, WA in a week and I wanted to fix my CB radio. I was having issues with receiving transmissions from my friend and so I pulled the headunit out(for the first time, very exciting!) and the antenna cord going into the back of the cb was loose so I tightened it. When I put everything back together, everything worked fine, EXCEPT when I transmit, I can hear it through my truck's speakers. Why the hell is that?

    When a high powered CB is transmitting near me I can usually hear them in my stereo speakers when I have the radio on a AM station.

    But, I have never heard my own CB. Do you have a amp on your CB? Are you TX over 4 watts?
