    ok...you found a CB in the garage, right?

    the easiest way to hook it up is just to splice it into a known ignition wire (like one that goes from a aftermarket guage, etc.) to the Hot side of the CB and ground it with the other electronics, too.

    The easiest way to hook up an antene w/o problems, is to get a magnetic base one. the antane on my rig went bad, so i am running a mag. antane for Pismo.

    I have some free time this week. PM me your schedule and i'll try to assist, if you need it.

    You forgot the PA option, along with the McDonald's option also. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Yes! PA is a good thing. Holler at the girls on bikes on the side of the road. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif Or let greg know you're at his house for the party at 1 in the morning. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
    I can see it now... if UseYourBlinker gets a PA set up in his K/5. That guy's obnoxious. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    OK, you guys forgot about the coax cable. You aren't going to be talking to anyone without that. Just had to get my $.02 in.
