Check your microphone connection. There may be a short in your mic plug. Some radios require a microphone to be connected in order to receive. If you recently changed microphones, be certain it is wired for your particular radio. Hope this helps. Also, do not use radio if this condition still exists as damage will occur.

Pitcrew, does the noise go away when you screw the pl259 down tight? Find someone talking on a channel and do the PL test again and see if their signal disappears when you screw down the PL. Have you done an SWR test yet? Is this a fairly new antenna? If this problem came into my store, the first thing I'd do would be an swr test, the second would be to test with a volt/ohmeter from the center pin on the PL to the metal stinger to make sure there is a connection.Then check from the trunk mt to the outer ring of the PL for connection. Now, if you check from the center pin to the outer ring of the PL you should not have connection! If you do, the coax has a short in it,,,
Is this mounted on a trunk of a car? Sorry for all the questions, but there are so many different things it could be, and I'm just trying to narrow it down for you. Hope this helps some, let me know,,, Mechanic

Make sure the radio is grounded properly and that the SWR is around 1.2:1, 1.3:1 is good but try to get it to 1.2:1. Also take a power output reading while keying the mic. To do this with your power meter put it in-line with the CB and your antenna and key the mic you should get about 4 to 5 watts PEP. If this is the case your unit is putting out the proper power level, if not have the power amplifier checked by a qualified repair shop.
I hope this helps

what i would do is go and buy a real cb antenna mount like a mirror mount and get a peice of sheet metal and screw the mount to the metal and screw that to the roof or side of the house and you should buy a spring that will also help with the swr and if you by the mount you can just screw on a standard pl259 connector

the shielded coax rgu-45 series is probably the best one for this application also if you run the radio to a different fuse or u can also get a surpression filter that goes on the coax line I own a WL9000 KW. i had the same problem untill i got the filter installed at a loves truck stop in texas and no more problems since ok?
drive safe and best regards mike (warner transp.)
