the shielded coax rgu-45 series is probably the best one for this application also if you run the radio to a different fuse or u can also get a surpression filter that goes on the coax line I own a WL9000 KW. i had the same problem untill i got the filter installed at a loves truck stop in texas and no more problems since ok?
drive safe and best regards mike (warner transp.)

You do set this up like a regular CB. The meters refers to how long the waves are. CB is 11 meters. So its very close. The antenna woud be tuneds slightly shorter. Use the SWR meter in the radio to calibrate just like you would a normal cb.
Now for the ABCDEF knob. each letter is 40 channels in the band. So A would be 1 - 40 channels, then B would be the next 1 - 40 channel frequencies. You use the frequency counter in the radio(providing that model has one) to tell what channel you are on.
Here is some info one the frequencies in the band.
Now for AM and FM. this is the type of modulation you are using for transmit and receive.
CB transmits on AM or SSB. Amplitude modulation or Single side band. Most CB radios only have AM. But some also have SSB. None will have FM.
FM is frequency modulation.
10 meter radios can have AM FM SSB and DSB depending on the model and options it comes with.
So your radio has 6 ranges for freqency. each is 40 or 50 channesl. Not sure what model you have. If it has 40 then you have 240 channel freqencies.
with AM and FM, you double that, because you can talk on AM or FM on all the channels. If you are on AM and some one transmits on FM unless they are really close, you will not hear them at all, but if you do with will just be garbbled noise.
Also Am and FM both work a little different with range etc.
Now, you may be able to talk on the CB channels as well. Cb starts at 26.965 MHz and ends at 27.405 MHz. The channels are all .010 MHz appart.
Hope this helps
