    I got what Albert Recommended. But i don't get Channels :( meaning there not working for me. I believe i need to use a "SWR meter" but if anyone has one that lives near me that i could borrow for adjusting part that would be pretty Saweet :) and help me with the Pa. I got a 50 watt. But my friend tried to connect Didn't work. :/

    I live in El cajon. btw

    You should still be able to receive. You could use a coat hanger to receive. You should be able to transmit with a poorly adjusted antenna, but you lose range the farther away from 1 you get.

    Maybe a admin will move this to the So Cal Forum. Or maybe you can delete it and start a new thread in the So Cal forum...

    I had hell getting my CB tuned and finally switched to a NGP antenna and now my SWR is fine and the radio works great.

    Setting up the pa on that radio is easy and I'm pretty confident I can figure out the speaker for you too. I'm interested to see how loud it is because I want to get a powerhorn too
