Question about Uniden Bearcat Pro PC68XL 40-Channels Base CB Radio
I have a 102" steel antena I cant get any distance from my cb only like a mile. how do i optimize the distance for my pc68xl cb. the antena can't be fine tuned. radio shack told me it's the perfect antena and my friend has a cobra with a 5" ft. fiberglass antena and he's getting about ten mile radius
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 email@example.com. Good Luck
