Sell blood and buy the $30 unit from Radio Shack?
If you powered the unit without an antenna attached it's toast.

CB's are so cheap I wouldn't mess around to long trying to figure it out.
:beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: I avoid stuff that comes out of blenders.

Check your antenna connections, make sure they are tight and clean. If you made up your own cable did you check it with a VSWR meter?

Used a standard cable. Havent checked the conection in the back which could definitely be loose. Still have to get all my camping junk out of the back.

I'd still put money it's the mic, even with a bad tuning on the antenna you can hear something.

His radio is definatly transmitting, I can look at my meter and see the signal coming in strong and steady, it's just not transmitting any sound.

I can here everyone loud and clear, w/ the exception of Rarecj8 towards the end of the day. He was talking up one hell of a storm of B.S. :D

He said people could hear fuzz when he was trying to xmit, thats why I thought he should check the antenna connections. Since you see the signal the mic ptt switch is working and the radio is broadcasting. Could be the mic pickup. Easy to check just swap in another mic.

Always fun to trouble shoot "blind". :no:
