Try the AM (if you have it) and see if it is just as bad as the CB... if so
there is a little filter you put between the distributor and coil hi tension
line. I found mine at Radio Shack and pluged it in and I was off.... the
stupid little clip filter thingy fell off on the freeway and I tought I was
going to die... but I then bent it a little and it remained in place...
Theres a few other things you can do as well (Ive read about small
capacitors every 2 feet everwhere and shilding your CB and antenna!! sounds
horrible) but this small fix fixed my prob. The part was priced at about $4
but it was the last pack and the number wasnt in thier computer so the radio
shack guy gave it to me...

Good luck..
