    Good morning everyone. Happy Saturday.

    Making a trip to Ikea in New Haven this morning. Wife wants to buy a shelf thingy, like one we bought there a few years ago.

    Well of course they won't sell that one anymore! But they'll have something similar that doesn't quite match... :annoyed:
    Better buy two & move the old unit to the garage for Taco parts. :anonymous:

    Morning everyone. Happy Sunday. Off to soccer in a few.

    Trip to Ikea went ok. They still had the shelf, so no need to buy two. LOL

    And the kids behaved.. For the most part.

    Happy Sunday,

    Spent some time yesterday finalizing the cb install. Installed the end connector on the antanne cable; soldered it up; ran power and ground, and had by brothers swr meter on hand (thanks @vssman for reaching out a couple weeks ago but it’s been busy and I learned he had one laying around). Went to the Farmington flats to test everything and tune the antannae.

    Radio has power, but swr meter doesn’t show a reading and speaker on the cb is silent.

    The radio was gifted to me used, and I can’t imagine someone gifting a bum radio but I’m at a loss. With the swr meter being unreactive in all conditions while keying in, I’m wondering if the radio isn’t transmitting.

    I’ll be spending today trying to research and diagnose the problem. Fingers crossed.

    Check the cable for a short or open. Ring out the cable with an ohm meter. Center conductor to the shield should be open. Then ring out each end; center to center and shield to shield. Each of those should have good conductivity. Also, some radios will go silent if the mic cable isn't connected properly so you might have an issue there. If those are good then I'm at a loss and would guess it's the radio. However, usually you only have problems with the Tx side or Rx, not both. Think of it. I know my vintage CB goes silent without the mic cable attached. So I'd give that a good look see.

    Make sure RF gain(if you have it) is turned down.

    Tested conductivity with the multimeter and it had conductivity where it needed; sheild to ground end on fire ring; center to hot side of fire ring; tested assembled and disassembled and both had same results. No conductivity between center and shield cb side; or hot to ground fire ring side.

    I am running with a 10 inch mic extension. But I pulled the extension out and hooked the mic up directly and it was still silent on the cb. Im getting the feeling it’s the radio unit itself.

    Any local cb shops in northwest ct? Looking to pick up a new one I guess; cobra 19 dx iv.

    Going to Shelton CT this afternoon for a tri-fold cover for the Tundra. Has a roll-up, but I don't like it. Trifold is just so easy, it's what the Taco sports.

    Success! But too dark to remove the old rollup tonight.

    Can anyone tell me why google works on the computer, but when I send the directions to the phone (Android) google always sucks?
    Last 2 times I tap the link to open the directions & get 'unable to find any routes'. 3-5 times before that it has / has attempted to take me beyond my destination to some random google advertiser physical location. I now memorize, or write out directions before leaving knowing Google will screw me somehow enroute. Today I memorized & wrote the directions, good thing as google couldn't find a route & my written directions had street names, but there were no street signs.

    I did try it a year + ago. Only mildly annoying, but a data hungry pig.
    Guess it's time to revisit.
