Default my cb radio install

I have posted in cb thread that i was going to put mine in back i changed my mind

I took it and put the bracket into the floor and usee the chasis screws on end to mount it proped against the seat. Right now i only have one whip but today i will put my other 102 inch whip on

I know all about the directional swr so dual whips is mostly for looks hope yall like it

EDIT: I put a external speaker in between the seats on back wall because i couldnt hear the speaker to good

I added my 2nd whip i gotta lower my swrs now

Well to sum it up when the solar cycles and weather is right you will hear people from other states talking on their base like i live in alabama and tomorrow if its right i will hear ny, min, virginia etc but doesnt mean you cant talk to them. The swr has to be low on antenna then you can try talking its cool to do like last year i talked to a guy from wisconsin and thats 800 miles from me the recieve to him wont last long depends on conditions i talked to him for 2 mins but i was stoked
