    I have a cb in my truck and use it mostly for the weather function.Well my problem i have is, the cb get's great reception but when i turn on the weather it doesnt come in that great, if at all.

    My last cb was the other way around, is there any tricks i should be doing to tuning in the weather stations?

    CB runs on 27mhz and weather is on 164mhz. The CB antenna is tuned for the 27mhz and weather is to far off to always get good reception from the CB antenna. I kept a handheld weather radio in my truck and got better reception with that than a cb.

    I have a handheld scanner, would that work better?
