      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

am/fm and CB combo

Recommended Posts

97 grand prix 113000

Anyone know of a good way to accomplish this (am/fm and CB combo antenna) and still get good reception from the radio and the CB. I was told a cb needs a 50 ohm resistor to use the stock antenna.

What I have now is a stock appearing am/fm antenna wired for a cb . Their appears to be a bulge under the shrink tubing that could be a resistor, haven't multi-metered it yet. The radio antenna wire is just a swingin' in the trunk and I get horrible reception with even the most common radio stations (93.9, 107.7, 99.9 and so on in Mt. Iron area) The FBI must have switched it over for their use when the car was in service.

I did hook up one of my CB's to the antenna and it did seem to work all right.

Also their is a little curly-q for a cell or something- not sure. Is there a way to use that as my am/fm antenna?

An AM/FM radio can use a CB antenna, a CB radio can't use an AM/FM antenna (well you can hook it up but the SWR will be whack and you're likely to fry the transmitter). If you want your car stereo to share an antenna with a CB then;

1) Mount a decent CB antenna on your vehical, the proper COAX cable for it, and tune it properly.

2) Run the output of the CB antenna to a Firestick AR-1A CB/AM/FM splitter.

3) Run one of the splitter outputs to your CB and the other to you AM/FM radio.
