Only thing that worries me is a new ham using a freq'ed radio. Until you really know where not to transmit, you're risking a lot there.

Hey Drew, back to the original question, I'd be more than happy to get your CB up to snuff. And I bet I have the perfect length of RG-316 (super skinny to fit panel gaps) coax for it. Only 6 feet long with PL-259s on each end.

If you want to go HAM you should be able to get a basic single band radio plus antenna etc... for under $300 new. Problem with HAM is there are so many cool upgrades and additional features you end up spending more on a nicer radio. (as Matt posted)

For as little as I've used my HAM I could have easily have done a basic radio but being able to monitor two channels at the same time is pretty cool. Example, at CM09 you can chat on the frequency assigned to your trail run as well as monitor the base camp at the same time. Or listen in on other runs for that matter given the extended range over CB.

I really like the HAM just wish more people had them. It seems most of the trail runs I've been on outside our club I never use it. I need to talk JT(trapper50cal) and a few others down here to get their license.

Anyway back to fixing your CB. Sounds like your connection between the antenna and the radio needs some attention. Should not cost much but will make a huge improvement.
