So, I'm not very educated about CB's and such. I know that truckers and wheelers use them a lot. I've used mine a few times to get info about traffic and whatnot... Anyway, I want to know why the CB will work without the ground wire connected? This goes against everything I know about electronics. However, it only does this with the antenna connected. When I disconnect the antenna, the radio loses power. Am I to understand that the radio grounds through the antenna? The ground wire, connected or not, has no effect on my reception. At least, not that I can tell. Is this normal?
