It would be best if you had seperate antennas. You can put a mobile antenna on each radio. Or else you are getting into expensive splitters,etc.

Hi. This Sansui 40 inch was working fine with an antenna. The Boy hooked up his playstation 3 and now it doesn't get any channels. Checked all the connections, disconnected the PS3, Tried doing th

You likely need to add an antenna amplifier. The PS3 should have been hooked up to one of the other source inputs other than the antenna. If it was attached via the antenna, a solder connection may have come loose or the coax got kinked.

I bought a new antanea 3 ft fiberglass with mirror mount when hooked to radio needle swings all the way to the red and i dont transmit or receive but when hooked back to old antenae works fine old antenae...

Mirror mounts need alot of Ground to tune correctly. Most mirrors don't ground to the door good enough, not to mention the reflection of the radio signal off the cab. Be sure it's grounded good and the nylon insulator is place.

Have k40 antena in my 29 ltd cobra and i cant get less then 1/2 mile signal

Hi, my name is John. A K40 is a great antenna. Make sure you have it in a good place, such as top of vehicle, a good ground, and SWR checked, they can check it for you free at Radio Shack or CB shack.....if that does not do it, let me know, it could be something internal....hope this was helpful....

2 cb's 1 antena ???

you cannot use one antenna on 2 units, the output power will hurt the other radio - not to mention greatly affect your standing wave radiation, greatly decreasing your range. You will have to run 2 antennas, but make sure to keep them as high as possible and at least 6 feet apart.

Non grnd steel antena

I assume your coax is not hooked up properly or you have some kink of a short in your antenna connection ( thats if your cb is working properly ) Radio Shacks Information that suggested that the 102" whip is the perfect antenna is their opion only as I prefer to recommend a full wave antenna system to my customers, but I do assure you, the 102" whip does work well if it's properly installed. I have found the main problem in the 102" whip installation is when the center hole is cut to install the antenna, it's not cut big enough, which grounds the antenna. It's not suppose to be grounded in any fashion to the automible chassis. The ground of this antenna comes from the 3 screws mounted around the outside of the antenna mount. Check that for sure. If you can't correct the problem. write me back at this web sight of direct at Good Luck
