Does anyone know how to get more range from your CB? On a good day I can talk about a mile, if I'm lucky. I have 2 SWRs. Also can you buy a 50/100 watt amp, and if so, where?
If it were me... I would change the coax to a mini-8 and use PL-259 connectors. A modification that is detail oriented. If I couldn't panel-mount a female connector to the radios chassis, then I would pigtail one as close to the radios chassis box as I could. Being part of the radios electrical circuit, the antenna must be shielded to 100% as close as possible once leaving the radios chassis box. If not, think of a leaky water hose connected to your outside spigot. Where is it leaking?I have a 2005 Wing. What would you suggest for me to do to improve my coax?
