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.

    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
