CB problem

Ok i have a problem with my CB and cant figure it out. After I went offroad yesterday i turned my CB off and went to the powerwasher...When I was done i turned on my CB but no sound. The antenna was the only thing that was outside and everything was tight. I had the top on so nothing got wet on the inside. All connections are tight and now i just get the channel light but when i press the MIKE button i get TX come up so i dont think it involves the mike. I have a mavon CB and a 3 ft. fiberglas antenna that i picked up at radioshack(no laughing it was an impulse buy) Well sorry its so long but does anyone have any ideas???

i dont have a PA. It will work from time to time but when im going down the street at above 25mph i lose reception. It comes and goes and ive checked and rechecked everything...the coaxial cable isnt bent or anything. Could it be an antennna and how could i check w/o getting a new one??

what kind of antenna do you have? a decent screw-in jobby or a magnetic mount?

You might want to check Craig's website. He is into Jeeps and has been the "gawd of CB's" for around 25 years (full time job). He has some great information on his site regarding CB's and antenna and such ..

You might just find your answer there .. I know I found many of my answers there

Go back to RadioShack and have them put an SWR meter on your cb. Water can get down in coax causeing a short to ground

im thinking of investing in a longer antenna to mount on the bumper for a little better reception and i took it to radioshack and calibrated it. It works fine offroad but i find that at times it has problems going on the street. Im hoping a better antenna will help reception as well as signal reliability. Thanx
