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 wyoed1@aol.com. Good Luck

No sound unless the other person on the cb is close to me the further apart the lower the sound goes until its gone less than a mile apart


I hope you matched your CB radio in with the antenna. Most CB radios are good for about 5 miles without having a linear. Extra Power Source }

Microphone problem


Hi,

I might be wrong, but a wiring problem sounds like the culprit here.

Where the mic connects to the PCB, inside the radio, something has come adrift, the fact that your keying is getting through means something is loose, open it up and have a good look at the connections, if you find the culprit, fix it with solder, but be very sparing and careful, you don' t want solder all over the area, else you'l stuff up the mic input completely.

I hope I'm right, and I hope this helps you fix it.

Cheers,
Peter

Dose it work good like i live in a prtty good nabor hood dose it get good distance will it conect withe other bigger cb radios


Typically, this type of handheld has a useful range of approximately 1-2 miles. This distance will be increased with other radios being mobiles and base stations. Distances of 5 miles is possible if the other person has a good base station antenna. I would not expect much from the stock rubber ducky antenna.

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....

Wont talk out.


Hey, stubby, Turn you mic gain wide open on the radio. That controls the modulation. Course if the radio has not been tuned that makes a big difference. Also the size of the antenna and how well it's tuned makes a big difference. Mechanic
