I've been tinkering with my CB radio for quite some time now. After I installed it and hooked it up to my antenna, I was getting a high SWR or about 3 or higher, in the red. I was recieving traffic on several channels, but I wasn't gettin anyone to answer my calls. That was about 2 weeks ago. I've been tweeking, and splicing cables, grounding stuff, trying to get my SWR down to a 2 or better. playing with it in the garage like I'm not supposed to do etc. I finally have the radio calibrated and am at about a 2.0 in the green, I'm running a 102" whip and a Radio Shack Classic with WX band. I've been hailing on the radio left and right on every frequency and nothing at all!!! It's got me thinking that I may have blown or fried something. The transmission signal meter is pegging out on the far right of the meter now that I installed a 102" SS whip. I'm picking up the NOAA WX band loud and clear. What to do or check. I'm in Wasilla off of Shrock rd, and figured out of all the rednecks in the Valley with dual antennas on thier trucks some chatter has to be on the airwaves.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks Billy Jack
