Question about Uniden Bearcat Pro PC68XL 40-Channels Base CB Radio
As long as my battery isn't turned on my radio is sometimes strong, but as soon as I turn the key and turn on the battery my radio immediately loses signal strength and just lightly gargles. The same thing happens after I key the mike. A while ago I wired an amplifier to my PA and the wires were labeled backwards, so when I plugged it in and turned it on they wires melted, the amplifier melted and my radio has been doing this ever since. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Wire your radio directly to battery!
Run about 12 guage stranded wire to your battery with a Blade fuse standard size with a 25 amp fuse sice your using a CB Amplifier inbetween put a 30 amp auto relay.going through the switching contacts.
Now wire a grond to 1 side of relay coil the other use a12v source from fuse box so when key is turned on the radio will come on! If you want cb to come on anytime then I suggest skip relay and rub wires to
the floor with insulated banna connectors but put that fuse in line also the fuses on your cb and amplifier to.
Your problem is your trying to gather DC for your radio off a vecical power source them wires are to thin and you may be getting a Bad ground saight t the battery only best way! If your radio gets weak check your battery if you hve a cb amplifier on turn off durring transmissions without car running! goood luck

Testimonial: "My problem wasn't as bad as I originally thought it was. I was missing the little plastic ring that goes in between my antenna and the connecter deal it screws into, and also I had a 2 subwoofers and and amplifier for them wired in my truck, and whenever I turned my truck on the amplifier was drawing so much power that it took it away from my CB, so I unhooked them. I appreciate your feedback though."
