Re: CB antenna cable length???
One other note:
I'm sure it can be done, but personally I haven't had any decent luck with splicing wire, adding barrel connectors or anything else that would mean you aren't dealing with a single piece of wire from end to end.
Heck I was happier than a pig in slop not too long ago, I finally found a hobby shop that sells CB stuff locally. There's a grizzled, crochety old coot that is their radio technician (RC cars, CB, Ham, you name it). I learned a lot, bought a "special" CB, and oh my gawd, I can get a good 5-10 miles out of my junk now...
On a slightly unrelated note, I also found a very cool little accessory for about $1.00. A magnetic mic holder. I bent the pins on it, so it stays on the mic all the time; when I'm done yakking, I just slap the mic on the overhead console, dash, tuffy console, whatever is handy, and it STAYS there. That's WAY cooler than $1.00!!!
