    new guy from south jersey

    Hello everyone my name is matt and I'm form south jersey. I bought my first cb about 7 months ago and blew it up in a month or so. I went to a local shop to see what I did wrong. He told me about swr and what I did wrong. Then he scanned my jeep and I had a 999.00 @ 27.350. So I redid every thing with all the wright stuff and got a 1.05 @27.195. Now I'm hooked so I now work for him doing antenna's and modding radios. I'm looking to learn more about the repair side of the radio.

    That's real close to how I got started and also how I came to work where I do. I went to buy a base antenna last year and wound up doing the installs, ant. checks and learning the repair and mods side of it. Its a great hobby and if you gotta work may as well do what ya' love for a living. But be warned CB RADIO is habit forming. First you just want a radio, then a better radio. Better anteena and it grows from there. Welcome to the forum. We have some very nice and knowledgeable folks here.
