    I installed my CB with the cooltech bracket/antenna kit. It receives just fine (loud and clear) but I cannot transmit. Everyone just hears a lot of static and noise when I key up. Will this ground strap fix that issue do ya think? Thanks

    Okay, that's pretty good. Ground could definitely be the problem or should I say, lack thereof.
