View Full Version : Uniden Bearcat 880 and a Jeep Wrängler cleaning up noise

04-23-2021, 05:52 AM
As the Titel says, I have a Jeep Wrangler 2012 Model and currently have my radio installed but get a crap ton of static and possibly engine noises as well, I am looking at getting a Wilson antenna with top load and ground wire to help, but want to know if there is any other way to help clean up the noises and static, I got my swr down to about 1.5 or less on ch1 and ch40 but still get static and seem to also have static when picking up anything else on the CB from truckers.

Not sure if it will help but I think I am front biased on ground plain also due to antenna being on the rear tailgate of the Jeep?

Current set up is the following

Bearcat 880
SWR metere
Rear tire carrier mounted antenna is 4‘ Fire Fly tuneable antenna

Sorry for grammar/formatting on mobile/German formatting
