    What am i missing?

    Back into CB after a few years without. Bought a new Sirio 5000, Mag mount on the roof of a '18 GMC P/U. Can't get the SWR below 2 Tried the old Wilson 5K on the same Mag mount, same thing, TOO high. Any ideas??? Can't drill it, company work truck.

    Two radios on same antenna?

    You can have two radios with one antenna IF you have a good switch in line. I have been running a connex and ranger with one Wilson 5K for years. I had the connex long before I got interested in SSB. Did some home work and talked to my tech guy. You can have both radios on at the same time...

    Amplifier help.

    Be sure to get an external SWR meter. Radio shk has a decent one for about $40. DON'T rely on the swr meter in the radio. If you are gonna start using some extra power you will need too get a hard mount antenna and loose the mag mount. Do you have a shop close by that can check out what ever...

    Works for me. The 8-1 0am time frame has been strong with UK, Ireland, Germany etc. for me. But what ever is the most popular time frame is good for me.
