where is it located? Where is your antenna?
Usually when you start moving, any noise (vibrations) can mess with it. So, if the antenna or CB is close to the ignition, engine, or muffler, you could have problems.

Hey jason... when you have time give me call. I wanna test the antenna cable and antenna. Then check for RFI (radio frequency interference) on the power cable. I might have to re-route it.

To me it sounds like it's just out of tune. What is your SWR? If you have no idea, that is where I would start. You can pick up a cheap SWR meter for $20 online and $5 for a short 3' antenna cable to run between the meter and the CB.

:clown: Radio Shack, sells a fairly good quality SWR meter- pt# 21-534, was $35 bucks two years ago--

--the RG58/U, cable assy was $6.29--

--Worked great on my cobra and if you want, you can get a few bucks back by "tuning" friends CB's--

Radio Shacks SWR Meter is now running $49.99, I just bought one the other day. According to the owner of this radio shop near me, it is the only thing he suggests buying from Radio Shack though.
