I am new to the forum, and new to CBing.
I have an older cb and antenna, (brand unmentionable). I know it's not the greatest, but it's what i have at my reach for free. I have a 1988 Ford Bronco II with the wire whip antenna on top, so it has no problem getting frequency (as it smacks off tree branches).
I have it set on 19, which i know is "the" channel. However, i can never hear anything. I sit right next to the highway sometimes and i never hear anything come out of the speaker. The antenna is fully tuned....so could it be a problem with the CB itself?
