Got the same bracket and antenna from right channel as well. I ground off the paint on the bracket and ran my grounding wire from there to the vehicle tub. Sheetmetal screw right into the metal under the carpet. SWR readings of 1.2 and 1.5 after tuning. By the way, I also have my CB wired directly to my battery. How is your CB power grounded? Also, check right channels technical support pages for other ideas. As mentioned before, you could possibly have a bad antenna right out of the box but this would be my last hunch. Good luck.
PS - One last thought....You don't have your excess antenna wire coiled up somewhere in the vehicle do you? This can cause problems as well.
