I installed a cb a month ago, it was working fine after it was tuned. This is the second cb i've installed in my life so i'm somewhat familiar, but not a genius when it comes to them. Anyway, i started to not get any static when squelched. I thought it might be the ground. I went back and turned the antenna on my gutter mount and got static back. it must have been a connection issue I thought. Then i went back and loaded it by pressing the mic button. I lost all static again. Went and did the same thing, and lost it again over and over.
I tore the mount apart and put it back together. It worked and kept the signal after i loaded the mic. Seems to be working just fine for a day.
For future reference, what was wrong? Just a bad connection to ground or antenna?
SWR was fine.
