    COBRA 2000GTL grounded plug question

    Watch for ground loops! System should have common ground bar and radio, amps, switches, meters, etc should have short braided wire to a ground bus which leads outside to ground bar. Refer to Heil sound to explain deeper. Good luck.

    New User needs advise

    Make sure all you adjustments are made out in the open and NOT near metal objects, example not in a garage or parking lot with cars parked next to you. These will affect your adjustments.

    For the DX guys . . . vertical or horizontal wire ??

    I think an end fed dipole, if you tie one end horizontal and let the other end hag down might do it for you if you do not have enough space. I found for regular CB most people use vertical type set-ups, if your friends use horizontal you can do the same to minimize interference from others...

    Need some amplifier advice.

    A car stereo store may be able to help you with that, BestBuy even has some of those big capacitors to help with the initial key-up draw.

    Base A99 Antenna Feedline Question

    I used an MFJ-259b to get the best SWR at around ch20. Those rings at the base are tricky, sometime just being to close to it give a false reading.

    Base A99 Antenna Feedline Question

    I made a little choke by turning a 8" loop with 5 turns with the coax at the antenna feed point which helped my situation.

    I'm using a Texas Star 350HD, it's a 1 x 2, AB biased for SB use. It's good with a 30 amp power supply. It gets me out there during skip!

    Anyone recommend a budget amp?

    5/8 wave antenna worked the best for me with a good ground plane to get nice gain, if space is limited a good 1/2 wave will do and you don't need a ground plane but gain will be less.

    RFI getting into switching power supply when transmitting

    I only heard of this happening if there was a ground loop or it can be a bad power supply or cable. Make sure none of your cables are bunched together making round coils then to test try to remove ground pin from A/C plug using those adapter plugs. Make sure your antenna is grounded with a...
