Re: midland 77 104 no power helllllp

Hi,

We are located in Northampton, but unfortunately we don't carry out repairs on non-warranty radios any more. Mainly due to lack of components available and the price of new radios coming down.

If the dipole is tuned well it should perform better than a modulator. I would put it vertical though if you can.

Hi Mike,

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Yes unfortunately size does matter when it comes to CB antennas...

The easiest way to find out how busy it is in your area without putting an antenna up is to look at our user map... https://www.thunderpole.co.uk/cb-radio-user-map.html
