    Smile Problems with this Antron 99, that just wont stay out of phones and tvs

    Hi i went with a persons word that if i grounded it right, the antron 99 would do well at the base of it the height is 30 Ft at the tip i would say 48 ft. its on a 30 ft push up pole. someone told me to try 50 ft, or try and mount the 30 ft against my house where the pole would be in the air like 20 more off the ground what do you think I should do, the area i live in are non CB people and tend to do more on Twitter and pay Golf then talk on the cb these days

    a99's blead like a bitch just a fact of life...you can try a few coax loops at the base of the antenna and a low pass filter it may help slightly

    I have been told that fiber antenna's are notorious for TVI/RFI.

    I have never owned one to know first hand.

    A ground may help.

    Getting up higher definitely wont hurt anything. Your ears will grow and you will more than likely get out farther. May not cure the interference problems though.

    You cant run power or have anything cut in your radio with that antenna. I have a imax 2000 that blacks out my tv up stairs and bleeds on my phone. I also run an 8pill. Get a small beam or a ground plane well grounded and over everything

    whoever told you that , well , dont listen to him/her/it about cb equipment anymore .

    short of spending money on a better antenna ........ , you could try adding four 108 ground radials (#16+ wire works) . connect them to the mounting plate on the antenna . get two ten foot lengths of 3/4 or 1 inch #40 pvc and a 4 way for it . cut the 10 ft peices into four five ft peices . put them together with the 4 way so you have a big x . attaching your 4 108 grounds to it (many ways to do it) so as it hangs down it will spread them out to about 33 degrees . tape/attach the middle to the mast so it doesnt flop around . $6 plus wire , cheap to try and only a few bucks more to clean it up so it looks neater .

    also insulate the antena from the mast and add a bauln at the feedpoint where the coax comes into the antenna .

    that should help , will it be enough ? depends on your particular conditions .
