Intro to Basic CB
Our attempt is to help newer people not familiar with CB radios to not be intimidated by the technical details of purchasing, installing, and using a CB radio. This write ups is meant to be general in nature, and may not apply to some applications. We hope this will be helpful, though.

Important General Basic Idea: It is a fact that an inexpensive radio and good quality antenna system will out perform an expensive radio, and mediocre antenna system. Keep in mind that the antenna system really is about 90% of the overall performance of the system we are attempting to put together.

CB / SWR Tuning
Well after find a lack of CB antenna tuning write-ups, I figured I'd write one. The biggest problems I came across was what I did find was a whole bunch of in depth theory, that was rather dry. I don't want to spend days researching this, I just want to tune my CB antenna. This is meant to be a very basic, simple guide to tuning your CB antenna.

CB Radio RF Noise Suppression
The following dialogue occurred with John, a JU member that I was exchanging on-line posts with while he was attempting to reduce the RF noise in his TJ when he was installing his CB radio. With his permission, I am including it here since I believe it is both valuable info and it gives others a glimpse at just what can be involved in trying to clean up a noisy RF environment in a vehicle. Considering that entire books have been dedicated to the subject, this is just a short review of the things that were done. Please note that some of this is as much magic as it is science....by that, I mean that what may work great for me does absolutely nothing for you and your Jeep's CB radio.....or worse yet, you do it and it makes things worse. There are so many variables in the equation that you must understand that any one or a combination of these tricks (or others not listed here) may be just the cure for your noisy radio.

CB Tuning - Write Up
Well after find a lack of CB antenna tuning write-ups, I figured I'd write one. The biggest problems I came across was what I did find was a whole bunch of in depth theory, that was rather dry. I don't want to spend days researching this, I just want to tune my CB antenna. This is meant to be a very basic, simple guide to tuning your CB antenna.

Any antenna designed to transmit has to be tuned. Failure to tune your CB antenna will result in burning up your CB. Basically if your antenna is not tuned, some of your CB's signal will be reflected back into the radio, if this happens in very short order your CB will be receive only. To tune your CB antenna you will need a SWR Meter. Just in case you are wondering, SWR stands for Standing Wave Ratio.

CB/Ham SWR Meter Operation
Your RadioShack CB/Ham Field-Strength SWR Meter helps you tune your CB or
amateur radio system for the best performance.

CB and amateur radio systems work best when the antenna system's impedance
matches the transmitter's output impedance as closely as possible.
The meter's standing wave ratio (SWR) function helps you trim your antenna
to the precise length you need for the maximum transmitted power.

The meter's field strength function helps you position your antenna for
the best coverage and determine the effectiveness of changes you make to
your antenna, antenna cable, and transmitter.

Carefully read all of these instructions to get the best use from this
meter.

Cobra 75 wx install & wilson antenna
After a trail ride with the handheld CB, I was convinced of two things:

* the CB is an essential tool for traveling in groups on the trail
* the handheld was a lot better than nothing, but did not have the range needed for any communication beyond several hundred yards

I knew it was time for a permanent mounted CB

Mobile Antennas
Trust me more antenna info than you ever need to look at.

This is an area of hot competition among antenna manufactures. I am not going to cover how to mount your mobile antenna (Radio Shack sells everything you need to mount antennas), but the basic mobile antenna designs that most mobile antennas manufactures are using today. If you have just started reading my page and are new to antennas, you are going to be confused. You cannot just jump right into putting together an antenna without learning a few things about them first. You have to read "Antennas Basics", "Coax Basics" and the "Verticals" sections first before you tackle this section. First we need to introduce a new term that we will be using to rate mobile antennas (gain really isn't a good thing to use, since mobile antennas generally have no gain), "antenna efficiency". This is how well the antenna converts your power (watts) to signal instead of wasting it as heat. An efficient antenna puts most of the power out as signa

Scanner mounted in XJ middle vents
Ok, I got off my rear today and decided to mount my scanner in the middle vents of my dashboard.

Installation was really simple. I pulled out the two rotating vents above the CD player, then pulled firmly on the beizel until the entire cover popped loose. I then took a Dremel tool and cut out the plastic piece that holds the vent pieces in, then cut out the other piece inside that splits the air. After that, I measured the height of the scanner versus the size of the inner portion of the hole and found I needed to cut away the top to make room (the beizel was just the right height). I also had to trim the back wall of the vent to allow the scanner more room to fit comfortably.

TJ CB install
I needed to install a CB in my `99 Jeep Wrangler, but was at a little bit of loss on how to do this. I mean, I knew how, but not where to put everything. So I searched on the Internet and some of the parts sites that are out there. I ran across Turbo City and found that I liked both of their CB radio and antenna mounts. So I ordered the parts and waited about a week. When they arrived, I opened the packages and liked what I saw at first. The radio mount was perfect, fit and finish were great, however, their antenna mount left something to be desired. It had two threaded sections welded onto the back, but did not include a template on where to drill the holes in the body tub.
