I purchased a Uniden PRO510 and hard-wired it so a keyed-ignition source, so it's only on when the car is running, and I am using a Wilson Lil Wil antenna on the roof of my car.
Problem is that 99% of the time all I hear is static, and I have to turn the squelch up really high so it's mostly silent. The few conversations I hear I can barely make out because they are full of static, unless it's like a base station talking (then it's really clear).
My route is through Route2 -> 495 -> Route3 in MA, and 495 is full of truckers. I can't make out a damn thing anyone says because all I hear is static. I haven't done any tuning or anything so far, only been running it for like 3days.
Here's a pic of my car (except I have a bigger wing and it's not piss yellow)
