Sending and Receiving sounds like "penuts teacher"
I was with a friend of my and we could not hear each other. Later he picked a truck and he hear it clear so, where I had "penuts teacher" coming through my speaker so we assumed it was my crappy ant. I went and bought new ant. and I am having the same issue. The problem I have discovered is with my unit, (because if I turn my dynamike all the way up when I transmitt I hear the crappy noise). I have even used an external speaker, and same thing. Is this fix able?

do you have the volume turned up? Squelch turned all the way left and RF gain all the way right. If you still don't hear anything check to see if this model has a dynamic squelch .If it does turn it off.
Use a 8.5 feet(102 inches) That would be the size of this whip. One thing to do put it up high in the air in 15,30,45 feet lengths. Have heavy grounding like 4 metal rods drove into earth 6 ft. use a tower and also ground it to a big metal filing cabinet or water pipes. I found that your Electric meter box is grounded real well. Use big low loss coaxial 50 ohm in the lengths 9,18,27,36. Your hearing is through sometimes ground planes. Lets say you use a tower or Tv pole 30 feet. Mount your 102" in. whip on top- seperate it from 4 ground prongs by rigging PVC pipe in between. Make 4 Ground planes about 5 feet go out North,East,South,West. Run 30 feet of coax to your house. It should pick up better an transmit better. Check SWR (1.5 or so) SWR Varies 1.1-2.1 ratios. I never had no problems talking on mine 5 to 30 miles away. Turn up receive inside radio. Its near front ; may be white variable or chrome with screwdriver slot. Take speaker side off and look near left handside front when radio is upside down.
its a fact of life when it comes to CB. Some times you will hear it over the radio if it is on. Happens with mine. There really is no way to solve it unless you replace all the speaker wire in the car with shielded wire.
You are sending out RF. When the AM modulation hits the speaker wires, the act like an antenna a bit. If there is any electrical signal in the wires, from the radio being on, even if the volume is low, and some times even down all the way, the signal in the wire coming from the radio acts like a carrier signal and causes the speaker to resonate to the modulation, giving you your voice on the speakers.
You can try running the power wire right to the battery, but its most likely coming from the antenna.
You probably will not ever be able to get rid of it.
Some cars it doesn't effect depending on the speaker wires, some it does.
I can say that a lot of people have their radio modded so that they can hear them selves over the radio when they talk. its called talk back. This way you can know how your audio sounds.
Think of it this way. You don't have to pay a tech to add this feature.
And you know its not sending out messages because no one is answering you,right. Well ,maybe no one in your area is on the same channel as you are or maybe some one listening but they feel some one else will answer you. hook an external speaker to the PA side of the radio output and see if your voice comes through. Then if you bridge the speaker out put of the cb/pa you chould be able to get talkback. If you can hear yourself talk then your radio is getting out but the question then is how far? Have you checked your SWR reading . You should be below a 2:1 to get out with a decent signal but a 1:1 to 1:5 is best. Actually another radio tuned to the same channel as you , set up a few feet away,should pick up your transmit so you don't have to hook up talkback. If you can hear yourself talk then your radio is getting out its just no wants to talk at the moment.
take a 9 foot wire to the bad radio put the the wire into the center of the ant jack a see if you can hear your buddy glass mount ant are ****.
9 foot whip is best in car/truck 4 foot fiberglass cophased are next 4 foot are next mags are ok but over time and moving around they will mess up you paint
I am not completely sure i understand whats going on. it seems like it could be a few things because of different parts of the question.
With my CB everyone else can hear me and the signal transmits fine Good! I have tested to see that my CB is picking up the signal how? A meter on your radio should either light up or a needle should swing if you are receiving. their voices don't play through my mic of my PA A Mic is a microphone, i think you mean speaker. Ok this may be the cause of the problem.... Try a couple of these. First, unplug the PA Speaker, this simple act should make you to be able to hear the incoming signal. Make sure the CB is on AM or CB not PA If you can not hear the speaker may be busted or an internal part may be blown. (needing the expertise of a required technician) If you can here when you do this make sure the speaker is working by plugging it into a computer. (mp3 players will barely put out enough power to make a sound audible) if this works, make sure you plug it into EXT not PA on the back of the radio.
one more thing to check. i dont know what radio you have but try turning it untill you hear static. if its all the way the other way you may not hear anything, also turn up any RX or rec. knobs.
i have limited knowledge about whats going on, but i hope this will help fixya
