Oh yeah. The best radio to get reach that distance with no problem would be a 10 meter, such as a General Lee, Connex, Stryker, or Galaxy with a 2 digit model number. Those, with a good antenna set up properly, will reach out 10 miles real clear and up to 14 - 15 miles with some reception loss.

Regular cb radios, such as Cobra, Galaxy 3 digit model numbers, Uniden, etc will have a decent reception, but generally when used barefoot, will only transmit and recieve about 6 miles real clear and up to 9 or 10 miles with a decent amount of signal loss.

Now, you do not have to have a big, expensive antenna to get the distance you want, you can do it with just a cheaper fiberglass stick antenna like a Francis 4 1/2 foot. After I installed a Francis antenna and a General Lee on a tuck outfited the other day, I was able to talk to a man apx 14 miles from my location.

The main thing to look for when installing the antenna is that you have a good coax (braided center conducto and 95% braided sheilding), and that the antenna is not grounded out, just the bracket (this is what makes your ground plane). Make sure the nylon spacer (looks like a plastic washer with a lip on it) is place on top of the antenna mount, with the lip facing down through the hole. You can use a magnet mount antenna, but you will have much much better luck with a hard mounted antenna.

If you have more questions, or if you need me to send a picture showing the placement of the antenna and bracket parts, dont hesitate to email me. rollincbmoew@yahoo.com

Kdl-37w55/57 sony bravia problem is every so often the picture seems to stutter,delay best way to describe it. Any ideas


hello, try tightening your antenna connection this happens when your signal input cable is fualty or loose check that first. then try all other connection that come from your cable,sat reciever or antenna hook up. if your using a digital reception device or digital antenna check those connections to. and be aware that digital reception has interuptions and they depend on the distance between you and the digital signal broadcast station, sometimes storms and atmospheric conditions may cuase a brief lapse in the signal.(stutter) what are you using for a reception? satelite, cable or a digital antenna? hope this helps

Driving a 2003 Ford windstar. Went to pass and


Very common on this make and model trans, pump drive splines inside torque converter strip out and pump is not turning, Most times there is no damage to pump shaft. Remove trans and remove torque converter, inspect the splines at the very bottom of the hub hole. If stripped out inspected pump shaft splines which are the smaller center splines coming out of trans, if ok replace torque converter and re-install trans, change out fluid, clean any metal from magnet and replace filter, fill with fluid and verify proper operation.

People can't hear me clearly on my KCA-BT200.


Hello,

Bluetooth originally had a limitation of about 30 feet +/-, however that doesn't mean great clarity until it reaches its peak distance range. With that said, I would suggest trying to move your phone around in the vehicle to get the shortest distance possible to the receiving Bluetooth device (KCA-BT200).

Can't send a fax.


This can be tricky and sometimes requires some playing around with to get the settings you need. Here is a document that HP created for just your situation. You may need to try it a few times to get the timing right but once you figure it out you should be able to use the same formula for all other fax calls long distance.
