Hmmm... This discussion about noise from the coax running parallel to 12V wires has me wondering. When I re-wired my CB direct to the battery, I ran the wires through the same grommet in my firewall as my coax. Could this be my problem??

Bummer, they are (were) right by my work and I was planning on stopping by there to pick up a CB next week. Guess I have to go to the place way over on Sheridan now. Any other places in town worth trying? I gave up on buying the cheapos at Wallyworld after going thru two that only lasted a year or two each.

Martin you should see the grommet on the firewall in my 80... I don't think you could get another wire through that sucker if you had to, I must have 30 wires crammed through the thing.... CB, ham, rock lights, fog lights, seat heaters, OBA, stuff I can't identify, even the CB antenna.. if there's a god of electrical interference he is no doubt cursing my name and planning my eternal damnation as we speak..

but I don't have any problems transmitting on CB or Ham, the only issue I get is when the inverter is on in back I get a little CB interference, and I've chosen not to worry about since I don't use either that often, and even less often at the same time.

Thanks for all of the great info.

I guess if this thread continues as it is...it should probably move over to the tech section?!! I will make an attempt at the CB install next weekend and see how it goes from there.

Hmmm, I didn't notice what forum this was in. We should probably move it. Should we put it in Tech Chat or Ham Radio Corner? Does the Ham Radio section include CB stuff? Seems like it should.

IMO the Ham Radio section sould be renamed to Ham & CB, or Communications, or something a little more ambiguous than just Ham.

And then sure, move it!
