Question about Cobra 18 WX ST II 40-Channels Base CB Radio
I bought a cb radio at a yard sale but the coax cable that it came with, one end is cut off. I know one end plugs into the cb, but what's on the other end so I can duplicate it? And, do I need to ground the antennae?
The end without a connector was once attached to an antenna. You need a proper antenna in order to use the radio. If you were to buy a new antenna, it will come with a length of cable attached. Even if you were to buy a new antenna, don't expect good performance from the radio unless you get the antenna properly adjusted. Yes, it will work "out of the box", but probably not as good as it could. There is a device called an SWR bridge, it's used to measure the SWR and the user then adjusts the antenna for the lowest reading by trial and error adjustment of the antenna.
