Make sure that your RF GAIN KNOB IS TURNED ALL THE WAY UP (TO THE RIGHT)! Also, make sure that the SQUELCH" is turned all the way to the left! Then check SWR's!

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....

Make sure to place your cell phone at least 12 inches away from your CB, and make sure your cell phone is not far from your blue tooth, and make sure you have a good signal on your cell phone and this will insure a quality conversation.

Tried to used CB without antena

If you were trying to transmit without the ant. then your assumption about the demise of your radio is correct.If you hooked it up using an inline fuse ,then just change the fuse. If you hooked up without a fuse, then no, you can not fix it. Please rate this answer.
