CB Issues

Hi, guys

I am having trouble with my CB and was wondering if anyone could lend a hand.

I bought a Cobra 29lx off eBay and when I first hooked it up, it gave me an antenna warning message when I keyed the mic.

Not I can hear people coming in, but they can't hear me when I talk out.

The test for the antenna passes but the RF output power fails.

I'm in a 2013 Mack and using the stock coax and antenna system.

Thanks!

Tanker

Hello, all. I was wondering if any of you pull a liquid bulk tanker? I currently work for a local company but I'm looking to make more money OTR. There is a Superior Carriers and Heniff within 15 miles of my home in NC. I would like to go out west if possible. Anyone have additional info on pay, etc? Their websites don't provide much info, so I plan on also contacting a recruiter soon. Thanks!

Stupid question about hazmat placards

I pull a tanker and sometimes I have to switch placards regularly. My placard holders usually lock the placard in place and won't fly out, but if I feel the clamp isn't strong enough, I'll use clear tape around the inside edges for added support. Remember that clear tape is the best, so DOT can't claim that part of the placard is being covered.

Info on Superior Carriers

Hello, all I am considering switching to Superior Carriers, which handles hauling liquid bulk in a tanker. I currently work for a tanker company and been here 7 months. It is mostly local with some regional occasionally. But it just doesn't pay all that great.

Before speaking with a recruiter, I was wondering if anyone here has experience with Superior Carriers.

What are the trucks equipped with? What kind of transmissions? Is it all 48 states?

What is generally the loading and unloading process? What kind of customers are usually dealt with. How is pay?

I'm specific to Superior because they have a terminal 20 miles from my house. Heniff does as well.

Any info would be great! Thanks for this awesome forum!

Intermodal Trucking

I've been trying to gather info on intermodal. Do any of you do it and/or know anything about it? I live in a town with a decent sized port. I'm not sure how profitable an o/o intermodal business can be.

Thanks guys.

Ernie, that would be great if timing would work out that way. I truthfully think I would be an awesome student. I'm easy going and easy to put up with.

Thanks, Realist. I need to quit worrying about it. Worrying won't help me any. I'm more anxious to see what life as an OTR driver is.
