CB Noise elimination
Ok, I have done the searchs and read most posts about this subject and have tried many of the suggestions, but still have a problem. I have a Uniden 810, 4 ft firestick, I used a SWR meter to setup, I have soldered connections on both ends of the coax cable, I have a direct fused powersource from the battery and a good connection to an underdash ground bar.
However, I still get engine whine through the CB, I can hit the accelerator and the whine increases with the RPM. When I shut the engine off it sounds strong and nice and clean. I have taken the antenna off and the engine noise is still persistent, this supposedly means that it is not an antenna grounding issue right? I have heard that inline noise elimiators do not always work but I have not yet tried one. Which make/model should I buy if that is the best next step?
So, does anyone have any ideas on what else I need to check, do , buy, etc.
Thanks for your help
