Ok so I have a cobra 75WXST cb radio, was working fine, old antenna broke so I installed a new 4' Wilson FGT with a mount that I drilled into the rear above the tail light. Hooked up the SWR meter and the CB turned on and had no display and then turned off.
I tested the mount to make sure it was grounded and it was, cable and antenna all test fine. I am so confused, please help!
Everyone says never turn it on without antenna hooked up but Cobra says different, so I tried it and it doesn't turn on now. Not sure if it has a built in breaker that makes it not work without an antenna.
