Question about Uniden PRO510XL 40-Channels Base CB Radio
To ground the antenna you want to put a ground rod in the ground and use a copper braid strap between the antenna and the ground rod. Make sure no gas pipes or lines are in the area you are driving that ground rod into the ground. Put a couple round circles in the coax in a couple places too and make sure they stay. This will stop lightning from traveling into your home should there be a strike. You need to match that antenna to your radio. You want to hook an SWR/watt meter in line with your radio to get the best consistent reading. If you get a stronger signal with your CB on lower channels then I'm led to belive your antenna is to long. You really should put an SWR/watt meter in line to be sure of the SWR. If the SWR on channel 40 is higher than that on channel 1, your antenna is too long. If the SWR on channel 1 is higher than that on channel 40, your antenna is too short. Adjust the tuning coils according to your findings.
