Default Re: CB won't even pick up static, transmits at half power.

Finally figured it out. There was a rubber bushing where my coax connects to my antenna, to give the antenna some play. I had it on the bottom of the mount. It goes on the top with the antenna poking through it, or it shorts out the whole damn thing. At least it was an easy fix.

Ah just as I suspected. At the mount or at the radio, every time.

Exactly why i hate those damn 3/8-24 mounts. So easy to screw up if you dont know exactly what you're doing.
