get a good antenna. one of the best is the predator 10-k a good ground & tune swrs. a good mic will help a whole lot too. the astatic 636l or the rk-56 are great & not real expensive. you can get online too. i have a gen lee & it rocks crystal clear & loud. no distortion. for any & all questions reguarding cb's try www.cbradiotalk.com this is a great forum. they have all the answers. radioactive radios.com is a sponsor there & has the stuff to lock down the down.

I didn't have a very good expierence with Radioactive Radios. I bought a radio from them and it shorted out after 2 months and they would not fix it even though it was supposed to be under warranty.

Up until yesterday I'd been running a Uniden 68. Over the past few months I've been noticing more and more that I'm not receiving as good as it used to (it was still transmitting fine).

So, yesterday, while driving along, I hit a good sized bump on the interstate. The cb started smoking - literally. I pulled off to the side and had to pull the power wires.

Got to a cb shop and had it looked at. The insides were ok except for one part (dunno what it was) and he said it'd cost about $45 for parts/labor to repair.

So, I traded my fried radio for a used peaked/tuned Galaxy 949.

Muuuuuuuch better now.

Yup, and I just dropped it off to my normal radio guy yesterday, 200 bucks to fix it. AKA put it back together normally, that also includes the charge for a new echo board and to tune it properly as the radioactive guys actually made it preform worse than stock. :evil:
