Question about Cobra 29 LTD CB Radio
I just bought and installed a Cobra 29 LTD Classic with a Firestik 2 (4') antenna on a 99 Dodge 2500. I mounted the antenna on my alunimum toolbox on the passenger side. I did ground the toolbox to the pickup. The radio turns on fine and everything apperas to be fine but the ANT light does not light up. I used good coax cable and it is not grounded out anywhere. I cant transmit or receive, I can hear nothing at all. Is this a antenna mounting problem? Thanks for any information. Does not transmit or receive.
Ant. light should only come on if you have a high vswr a bad thing did you check that cb/pa switch is set to cb check your swr this is not a good place to mount ant. as it is close to metal of back of cab

As I understand from a tech friend of mine, most truck beds are not grounded well enough. Perhaps you could borrow/purchase a magnet mount antenna and locate it on the roof, for testing. Then you would have it narrowed down to the location.
