    When I key up, the needle on the gauge moves to the left, but I'm not sure if the folks on the channel can hear me cause they never answer my calls. I always ask for a mic check, but nobody tells me if they hear it or not.... How can I tell for sure. I know for sure my buddy can hear me cause we tested it, but that was only several hundred feet away....

    The way I test the radio usually is have a buddy with a CB either sit in one place and have me drive around or them drive around and me sit in one place, and see how far it can get out... What range do you have the meter on? Put it on RF or S/RF and the needle should swing all the way to the right.

    Sounds like it's working, just not real well. I would let a CB shop take a look at it if I were you.
