You may have a radio where the AM limiter has been defeated which can cause all kinds of issues. I would first check the mic is wired right and does not have a problem, the radio should have output with a tone to it on sideband--wattage up to over 20 watts on SSB is normal.
No, but there should be an adapter that will allow you to connect a larger antenna---some with the BNC type connector you can buy a longer antenna--If 10 meter be careful unless have a HAM license to operate there.
The Magnum 257 is a 10-meter Amateur radio, but it can be easily modified to operate on the 11-meter CB radio band. The modification and use of this radio on the CB frequencies is, of course, illegal. To modify one of the newer blue-faced models (this will not work on the original yellow-face models), remove the speaker side cover and look for the CPU board in the front of the radio close to the mic connector. This board has four sets of pins and a jumper that fits on the pins. To convert/expand the radio, move the connector to the CON3 position. This will give you frequency coverage from 25.165 to 29.699 MHZ, and the CB frequencies will be on Band E of the radio. Again, this modification, and use of the radio on the CB frequencies, is illegal. This modification information is provided for shop/calibration and experimental use only.
There is no factory made 10 meter CB Radio made for US use. CB Radios use 11 meters, and the FCC doesn't allow the combination of 10 and 11 meter radios combines. Although, many people modify 10 meter radios to work on the 11 meter ( CB ) band, it's not legal. Good Luck
