CB Radio - New to CBS

Hey all,

I have a 19 Cobra Ultra III (i know, ive heard its crappy, but its my first one) with a 3 ft Firestik II antenna. I have it all tuned up between 1 and 1.5 on the SWR, but I do not hear anything but AIR coming through on all channels. What am I doing wrong?!?

You're going to get dead air on most of the channels. Did you put it on channel 19 and go for a ride near an interstate? You should hear some chatter from the truckers. Can you get someone with a CB to call you to make sure it works?
