I've been working a shit ton of hours over the last few months. About a month ago my cab quit working face wouldn't light up. Figured that was simple and a lack of power to the radio. Then it would start working coming on but wouldn't receive signal or transmit. No audio. I just bought a uniden pro520 today wondering if the old one was going gunny bag inside. That one has the same issues too. Powers up, but no audio. So replace the antenna is my next guess. The old existing one is either a firestik or firestik 2.

be sure the PA switch is turned off...
and that the unit is wired per instructions

^ a simplistic suggestion, I know...
but I really didn't read a specific question asked :confused:

Yeah I'm pretty sure its wired up correctly. Black to ground and red to power. The coax is still terminated at the antenna end and screwed into the cb. Pa is off so I'm just trying to figure out what's the next logical piece to replace.

yeah x2 on the antenan/antenna mount/ or coax having gone bad... although that doesn't really explain why the lights on the first one flickered. make sure you don't have a loose ground wire.

I haven't used a swr meter yet. If I turn up the knob on the far right (gain I think) I can get barely any sound. I've just been to busy to monkey with the damn thing. Will probably buy a new antenna and have it tuned.
