Question about Radio Communications
Have the radio tested first on a dummy load--if ok check the connector on the antenna--Big Stick antennas if old can break inside but a SWR check should reveal if a open antenna or a shorted one----you with a ohm meter should get a reading across the center pin to the threaded part of something like 50 ohms---either the antenna, coax or even the radio....

I would recommend that you put an swr meter (CLICK HERE) between the radio and the antenna to see if your radio is transmitting anything at all. Also, it will check to see if your radio is correctly matched to your antenna. If your antenna is not matched correctly it will fail to transmit correctly.

SOURCE: I purchased a Midland 1001z
Vibrations on the small cb's make the internal circuit boards come loose and its intermitted or will not RX or TX.. Check the antenna with another cb. using an SWR METER.. or have someone check it.. SWR should be free if you take it to them.. to check.. Make sure the antenna, mounts, and coax are ok.. if soo then its in the cb itself .. Email us if you need more help or need the radio looked at, the post office has flat rate boxes cheap nowadays. were in Temple, TX at the CB SHop.
