Question about Uniden Bearcat Pro PC78XL 40-Channels Base CB Radio
I have a uniden pc78xl 40 channel cb, my antenna is a 48 in firestick tunable antenna that is mounted to a bare meteal section of my roof basket. then i have a 10 gauge fine copper stranded wire only about 10 in grounding the antenna base to the chasis, with an 18 ft coax cable. i have really good swr readings on all channels but i cannot recieve anything. my signal strength according to the meter on the cb is very weak. i have adjusted all the settings on the cb(squelch,rf gain) but nothing. whats wrong?
SOURCE: MyCB radio wont broad cast
One of two things is wrong---either a problem in the radio or a problem with the Microphone----
Do you know how to open the mic plug and check the wires there?
Most of the time it is a problem with the mic cord---
Let me know if you need wiring diagram of the Mic--I can provide that---almost any 4 wire mic can be used to replace the stock one---
Original mic was 1 k impedance---but a 500 ohm mic will work and make the audio even louder.
Also have someone check the SWR or match on the antenna system--easy to do.
I am here to help---if this helped you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

then the antenna needs to be moved. antennas have to have a ground plane to get correct swr below 3... or there may be a bad ground. try moving antenna @ different angles to see if it changes swr's or even opening the door away or closer to the body will make it change. also check the insulator it should be on top. call if you need help
