Question about Radio Communications
I drive a truck for a living, Ive always had a good cb. Recently I just switched trucks that already had 2 antennas set up with all the coax run in it. I put in my cb and I am not recieving any thing farther than a half mile, however I can send for at least 2 or three miles or better. Not sure what to do short of ripping out the coax and putting on new antennas. Any suggestions?
Initially pls check the grounding of both the antennas and/or their mounts. Thereafter, an SWR check/reading would also be good as it will not only tell you how efficient your antenna is in transmit but likewise in receive.
Additionally, a two (2) antenna set-up (twin tracker) is directional and therefore would have blind spots on either sides and being on a truck (especially with load/trailer) probably even at the back.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
